    windows 10 indexing window empty, advanced button not working

    Hi Andre,

    thanks for the reply but none of the suggested actions is applicable

    • troubleshoot wizard says no issues
    • search UI process had been already terminated, pc rebooted, no solution
    • rebuilding the search index needs the 'advanced' button to work, but this is exactly part of the problem, as described in my original post
