If i search for a document name in the Document Library, it returns a list of files that contain the search word, but not the document with the correct title.

I want to change the search in Sharepoint so that only document titles and names are searched.

I already found the managed properties -> Contents and the field "mappings to crawled properties" (i hope i translated it correct)

crawled properties

Now someone here mentioned too look out for "Basic:10(Text)" https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/lync/en-US/562c3f58-aa64-40a9-8661-a4543da99ef4/search-file-names-in-document-libraries?forum=sharepointsearchprevious

I only need search to find document titles

What do i need to change here without breaking everything?

I hope you can help me a bit :)

If you only want to search the title then specify that in your query:

title:"search tips"

    tell that my users. This is really not possible to communicate. Or is there the possibility to adjust search that is puts the Title or File Name statement as default?
