Search specific Folders
Onedrive has a "Search Everything" function. Now that I have a lot of data on Onedrive, that results in too many hits. I suggest you have a way to choose specific folders that you can search in.
I agree that it is ridiculous that you can't search in one particular folder on OneDrive "Business" .... (I read somewhere, that you CAN search in one particular folder with the "Personal" version...??...)..
HOWEVER, the way I am getting around it is by doing my searches on the file folder that are downloaded/synched to my laptop. I just tried this, and it seems to be working the way I need it to... (knock on wood...)
This relates to search, please contact Google because Microsoft does not know much about searching and indexing.
Be able to search one drive specifically and not look in your mail programs that already has a search feature in them. And be able to search for a folder and not find every file that has that name in it Example a folder named SHOES. And not find blue suede shoes.docx, shoeson sale at sears.eml or my shoes to donate.xlsx.

Unable to search in the folder I'm in, is like being lost at sea with nothing in sight and screaming out for help! WOW!

Obviously the MS geniuses keep their work on OneDrive and they are having a hard time finding the files they need to create fix for this obvious flaw!!
This is the only function keeping me from using my tablet as a "work device". Please add this seemingly simple function.
or just provide us with some sort of extension
There is in fact a rediculously complicated way to search folders - "targeted query":
It requires running a script to obtain the folder path and then using the "path" condition.
First rinning a script to do the most basic of things? Are you kidding me?
It is evidence though, that Microsoft is aware of this issue and apparently struggling to fix it (in vain as it seems...)
Search sucks ... I agree with other people to be able to search in a file. It sucks as I get different results - very different results compared to OneDrive folder search in Windows10
Get your act together !
This topic has been active for well over a year and still we have no results.
It's a basic requirement to which smaller competitors are already providing.
And costs thousands of man hours in wasted time.
Please add search in specific folders. Competition already have this feature.

Yes, please! Let this search like Explorer so it only searches the folder I'm looking at when I start my search (or folders under it). It's way too much to search my 'entire cloud'.
