    Outlook: can I search "current folder" & "subfolders" simultaneously?


    Id like to be able to search ALL of my folders (in my current folder and all subfolders), simultaneously.

    I was able to do this in the previous version.

    Can I do this in 2016?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Has the ability to turn off searching subfolders to the current folder been abolished?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Let me help you clarify your doubts.



    The ability to turn off searching subfolders to the current folder is not abolished. If you are facing difficulties with the same, I suggest you to run
    Indexing Troubleshooter and check if it helps

    Follow the below method.

    Method 1: Run Search and Indexing Troubleshooter.




    If you're having problems locating specific files, folders, or other items on your computer, try using the Search and Indexing troubleshooter to fix the problem. It makes sure that the Windows Search service is running, and checks to see whether you have the
    correct permissions to search all the directories on your computer.



    Follow the steps given below to run Search and Indexing Troubleshooter.




    • Press Windows
      key + W key on your desktop.

    • Write Troubleshooting
      in the search box on the upper right hand corner.

    • Select the Troubleshooting
      option obtained after the search.

    • Select View All
      option.

    • Select the Search and Indexing.

    • Click on Next
      to perform the Search and Indexing troubleshooter and follow the steps.
    Check if the issue persists or not.



    Please reply with the updated status and details. We will be happy to assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
