    Can not search my email


    We just updated to Windows 10, have Microsoft 19. I used to use the search function many times with no problems, now no matter what word I tell it to search for, it says "no results". Have reindexed.and its like it doesn't see anything at all in my Inbox. Very frustrated.


    Moved from: Email / Searching email

    ***Moved from: [Outlook / Windows 10 / Office 2019]***

  3. Windows 10 search does not search emails.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I would appreciate if you could answer a few questions to narrow down the issue.

    • Which email are you using? Is it the email client or the mail app?
    • Did you try the same after restarting the computer?
    • Did you install any third party Security applications?
    • When you say you tried repairing, which repair did you mention? Is it the inbuilt troubleshooter?
    I suggest you to run Search and Indexing troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click Search and Indexing.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.
    • Check if issue persists.
    If you are using the mail app, I would suggest you to try running Windows store app troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Type troubleshooting in the
      Search
      area on the taskbar.

    • Click on Troubleshooting.

    • Click on View all on the left panel of the Troubleshooting Windows.

    • Select Windows store Apps.

    • Follow the on screen instruction.
    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    Can not search my email

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
