    Untidy Outlook


    Hi. Just upgraded my Win7 desktop to 10 without any apparent problems. (Had been using 10 in my laptop for some time.)
    In the laptop I have Office 19 and use Outlook 2019 (not the app).
    In the desktop I am running Outlook 2010. It is a bit untidy after a few Office upgrades and the archives have emails dating back to 2005.
    However I used to be able to type in a word in the Search box of Win7 and bring up results found in archived emails (as well as elsewhere). Windows 10 does not seem to produce the same results. Any idea why?

    Anyway, by way of saying hello, my computers are for personal use, mainly genealogy, correspondence and some social media, and are used every day, alongside my Android phone.

    Bill,

    I suggest you search in the Office section of the forum and & possibly post this question there.

    I also suggest that you do nothing yet. The current version of Windows 10 is known to have search problems so what you are seeing might be tied up in that and hence also tied up in whatever solutuon MS condescend to issue at some unknown later date.

    In the meantime, I'd use the search facility within Outlook itself and add a third-party search utility for file searches.
    - I use NirSoft's SearchMyFiles
    - I've also see Jam's UltraSearch recommended.
