how do things jog memory?

Why is it if I try to remember a day or event it’s difficult, but once I’m provided with more context, or puzzle pieces, I can remember events with grater precision?

It’s kind of like a search bar. You start typing things in and a bunch of results pop up. You start typing more words and the results get more precise. Less might pop up but it’s the thing you want. So if someone says oh we were at X location you could’ve been there a lot. Then they say last week and who you were with etc etc. You start to get more focused searches of your memories.
