    How Windows 10 May 2019 Update makes Windows Search better


    Windows 10 does a great job of allowing you to find your apps, settings, pictures, and even web items from the search box. But the search box does not show results from all local storages.

    Microsoft’s Windows 10 May 2019 Update adds a new feature that dramatically improves Windows Search capabilities.

    Search in Windows 10 has always been limited to looking in certain locations such as local documents, pictures, videos, folders, start menu and desktop by default. In October 2018 Update or older, Windows Search feature doesn’t quickly scan your entire PC when it comes to finding specific documents and other files.

    You can use Windows Search to quickly search the internet, libraries (Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Videos) and desktop, but it fails to scan all the local drives by default.

    The search takes time to find files that are not in indexed locations and sometimes it could also fail to deliver the results that you’ve been looking for.

    Windows Search Enhanced Mode

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update introduces enhanced search mode which indexes your entire PC, including libraries and desktop. This feature dramatically improves Windows Search capabilities, but it may also reduce battery life and even increase CPU consumption during indexing operations.

    Enhanced search mode is disabled by default and it has to be enabled from the Settings page:

    • Search for ‘Windows Search Settings’
    • Switch from Classic to Enhanced.

    After you turn on Enhanced mode, Windows will begin scanning and indexing your files. During indexing operations, there could be an impact on battery backup and it may also increase CPU consumption.

    It may take about 15 minutes for Windows to index all your local files, but the indexing operation may need more time if you have lots of files or low power hardware.

    You are recommended to plug in before you start because indexing is a resource-intensive activity.

    You can also monitor the indexing operation on Windows Search settings page. After the indexing process is complete, you can finally find files anywhere on your PC instantly.

    Windows Search index will update its data automatically in the background to include your new files and programs.

    Exclude folders


    If you want Windows Search to exclude specific folders, you can add them to the excluded folders list. For example, you can exclude a folder that contains tons of files that you won’t search for or you might want to exclude a folder containing sensitive files.

    You can also deindex large digital media folders that you don’t need Windows search through.

    By default, Windows excludes temporary folders and program files as it can slow down system performance.

    Windows 10 May 2019 Update comes with several similar nifty improvements and as well as improved performance.

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/defer-upgrades-in-windows-10

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.

    How Windows 10 May 2019 Update makes Windows Search better

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    Windows 7 went out of mainstream support on Jan 15, 2015.
    Windows 8.1 went out of mainstream support on Jan 9, 2018.
    And I doubt anyone on Windows 8.1 would mind too much upgrading to Windows 10. I definitely would not *Big Grin How Windows 10 May 2019 Update makes Windows Search better :D

    They are supporting only Windowses currently in mainstream support. For Windows 10, they seem to have moved the support model to the bi-annual updates being supported for 2 years and more recently 1.5 years.

    Has it been said if Office 2019 will actually work on Windows 7/8.1? Supported and actually working can be different things. Kind of like the "on supported hardware" comment above.
