    Windows 10 Indexing

    So i am having issues with searching for programs and files on my computer. At first i thought it just wasnt finding things on my D: drive(storage). But now ive recently installed origin on to my C: drive and i search for it but it does not find anything. Any ideas on what i can do to solve this? Ive attached pictures showing my windows index, my search in cortana, and the fact that origin is indeed installed(it does this with more than just origin though)

    On my original install I was having issues with indexing.

    The steps that worked for me included:

    1 - CCleaner: Windows > Windows Explorer - Untick: Other Explorer MRUs

    2 - Index - Rebuild

    Above was the cure for my system

    I have internet search turned off, so I can't help you there M8

    Hi, Cortana search (you should click 'My Stuff'- have you done that?) only finds what's indexed. Hence presumably your failure to find on D:

    Explorer search is better, but far better and simpler - and faster- is to use e.g.

    Everything (void tools)

    Both are freeware, provide search as you type results and index all your files (names, not content) fast.
    Windows search can index content too; Locate 32 includes a text file search.
