  2. Indexing Won't Rebuild

    Hi ShiraAbraham, Here are some troubleshooting steps to help you, please let me know if you have tried this already

    -Press Windows key + I and open Update & Security.

    -Select Troubleshoot and find Search and Indexing.

    -Double-click on the Search and Indexing Troubleshooter to run it.

    Wait for the scan to be completed.

    If these steps did not help to fix “Search Indexing Was Turned Off” error, our last recommendation would be to rebuild the Search Indexing:

    -Open Windows Search and type Indexing Options.

    -Click on the first matching option to open it.

    -Click Advanced and open Advanced Options.

    -Select Rebuild and white while indexing will be rebuild from scratch.
