No search results from files added

Using Splunk Enterprise Server 7.1.2 downloaded from docker hub. I added a folder via: Settings/Add data/Monitor/Files and Directories added a folder that had several files in it. I had assigned it to a new index, and I can see the index has a size of 5.65G, so I'm confident that they have been indexed, but searched for words that I know should return a lot of hits, but no results are returned. I even ensured that I selected "All time".

Since I had put this in a specific index, I had to put the following in the search terms to effectively search it: index="myindexname"
