  1. Indexing not working


    My Windows Search Indexing keeps stopping. When I restart it, pauses almost immediately. I have tried restarting it and rebuilding it, but it keeps pausing after indexing only a few items. Message says "Index speed is reduced due to user activity," then says "Indexing is paused." Every time I try to rebuild, I get these messages and it pauses after indexing only a very few items. The troubleshooter says it can't find a problem. What can I do? Thanks!

    :)
     

  2. Indexing is not working

    Hi Doc,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    This issue may occur due to corrupt Windows search files or settings. I suggest you to follow the below method and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to run search and indexing troubleshooter
    and check. Please follow these steps:


    • Type troubleshooting in the search box on taskbar.

    • Click troubleshooting in the search results.

    • Click "View all" and then click "Search and Indexing".

    • Click "Next" and follow on-screen instructions.

    Method 2: Check if Indexing and Windows Search services are enabled. If not, enable them, if they are already enabled, then disable Windows Search Service and then enable again and restart.


    • Press Windows key + R.

    • Type services in the run box, go to the Windows search services and restart them.
    Hope it helps.
