    Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    Indexing Options keeps reverting to default


    Hi all,

    I have been trying to set my Windows 10 Home 64-bit computer to index only the Start Menu but not anything else (such as IE Favourites, Documents). I know exactly where all my documents are; the only time I use search is something like, I press the Win key, and type in cmd, or ccleaner, etc. So I really only need Windows to index the start menu.

    However, every time after reboot, if I go into Indexing Options they will just revert back to default.

    Is there a way I can make the changes stick?

    Cheers,
    Richard

    Personally I just turn it all off.

    But then, you can't search properly in the start menu. Sometimes it is quite slow if you have to scroll thought all apps and look for a program.
