Search does not return even the recently used files

Running Fedora 24 Workstation.

Everything else is fine. What I hate the most is search.

I hit the 'Windows' key and start typing. I expect it to return at least the files that I have most recently used. It NEVER does.

Of course, files is selected in the search preferences and the folder to which the recently used file belongs is set for searching.

What am I doing wrong? How can I set this right?

FWIW, it is a text file and I am searching on file-name. But I have tried opening PDF files and they also don't feature.

Lastly, the speed, if I may use the word, sucks. KDE's search is far more responsive.
