When searching DVD Profiler on my android devices, the search function hits on all locations of a searched word. For instance, I needn't type out "An American Werewolf in London" when simply "Werewolf" would pull it, and others, up. It's a great feature, and I love it!

On my PC, however, the search function requires the whole "American Werewolf". Simply typing in "Werewolf" only returns titles starting with that word.

Another example, if I'm looking for The Man With Two Brains, on the Android I'd type "Brains", and it would pop up as one of the selections. On the PC I'd need to type "Man", as neither "Two" or "Brains" give the result.

Not sure if this is a new thing that's happening or not. What I would like to do is search on the PC the same as on Android. Can anyone help, or is this just how it works on the PC?

open Filter windows with Ctrl-F

and switch from "Starts With" to "Contains". IIRC this also affects the search field in the toolbar.

Thank you Mithi! Worked perfectly.

Now I have to wonder how I messed it up in the first place.

IIRC "Starts with" is the default option. It also gets reset, I think, when installing a newer version, like v4.0 over v3.7. So it isn't necessarily you...

If it is important, say it. Otherwise, let silence speak.
