My solution: It's often quicker still to drop to a command prompt and type a del command. Of course this doesn't help here if you've been carefully selecting individual files one-by-one in Explorer with no particular discernible pattern (there's no common wildcard you can use at a command prompt).

You solution can't hurt, but I'm not sure if this helps when managing files across a LAN. Of course this might be an entirely different problem. I tend to have indexing disabled at both ends, yet it can often take a lot of time just to refresh the content of a folder that contains very few files.

As far as I'm concerned (as a general comment), search has been broken since the Windows 2000 era. I've been saying since then that the whole "web search" paradigm applied to local file search is broken, and will remain broken, until the indexing can (efficiently) be maintained in realtime. The example I always use is to edit a .txt file to add a particular string, save it, then search for the string. If it doesn't come back right away, as far as I'm concerned, it's broken. More often than not, I use Visual Studio's "Find in Files", which does not try to use that indexing system. Yes, it's slower. No, it doesn't miss a thing. Guess which is more important to me?
