    I just tried turning Indexing back on, and after that, I could no longer search. I had to shut it off again.

    This happened to me before:

    The reason why it didn't work right now is because your computer began the process of Indexing your files. A Search will only give you results of what has been indexed only. Indexing takes several hours, at least. After the indexing completes, then it will show you your search results immediately without searching.

    I used to keep my search indexer off. Then I tried turning on the Indexer to see how I like it. I definitely prefer having file indexing turned on compared to having it off. Much more convenient. I would recommend you to try it out for a few days or whatnot and see how you like it. Your search results are much more faster, and the indexer is always on. Whenever you create new files, they would get indexed immediately.
