    That MS Store App is a Beta and probably has been pulled for various reasons.

    @silverz,
    I have found this M$ app useful in diagnosing Windows Search problems and suggest you install it: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/in...ot:overviewtab

    EDIT: Good old M$$$. I have it installed, by I see the link I posted is now showing:
    Indexer Diagnostics is currently not available.

    If you are able to install it, let me know.
    There's no need to download or install it. That's because it can directly be accessed under Settings | Search | Searching Windows | Run the indexer troubleshooter to resolve common search issues. Or, alternatively, under Settings | Update & Security | Troubleshoot | Find and fix other problems | Search and Indexing | Run the troubleshooter. Or, alternatively, under Control Panel | Indexing Options | Troubleshoot search and indexing. Did I miss one?

    Yes, it's a totally different app with more capabilities debug capabilities than inbuilt Windows Search settings.

    Probably the reason it can't be downloaded right now is because they're trying to locate it via Windows Search so that their green progress bar is still going.

    I use Windows Search every time I'm using my PCs and I'm quite impressed by it's performance. Rarely do I have to use a third party search app. YMMV.

    Well, I might as well glue the red and white target bullseye on my back and get it over with.

    Download and install Everything search. It will find your girlfriends name and anything with the name almost instantly, actually as you type. Used by many, not all, many on this Forum.
