    Turn Indexing on...

    Windows 10

    I used to be able to search for files. Now I can't. It tells me that indexing is turned off. I want to know how to turn it on. I get the attached screenshot. Help me, please.

    When was the last time you could use indexed search? What has happened that might have led to this?
