    Bing Image Search not showing results

    I noticed yesterday that this issue on my laptop had somehow been resolved. So, I came to my station and started disabling add-on extensions. I found that disabling "HTTPS Everywhere" restored my ability to see image results. Thank you for your time and effort
    spent on my question.

    I'm having the same issue. No search results within folders even though I know the file is there.

    Update:

    Rebuilding my Windows Search Index, while time consuming, seems to have fixed my problem.

    Hover over the Star Button>R Click>Control Panel

    Enter in the search box; "Search Index". Click the resulting link; "Change how Windows searches". In the window that pops up, 'Indexing Options' click on the "Advanced" button. On the next window that pops up 'Advanced Options', click on the "Rebuild" button.

    Depending on the size of your drive and the amount of files/folders you have, the rebuilding may take sometime to finish. Mine took the better part of 18 hours.

    P.S.
    In the 'Indexing Options' window you will also be able to adjust what is and isn't indexed.

    It will take some time. Search results start to come back almost as soon as the Rebuild starts. They will just be incomplete until it finishes. Considering the number of files just in Windows alone, not to mention your own user stuff, 18 hours is pretty good. Mine says it indexed 979,504 items. The good news is, once the Rebuild is done, every new file added to the machine gets added and the Index is mostly kept up to date.

    it actually didnt take to long for me surprisingly but it didn't work what ended up working for me was i opened up task manager and i usually crtl shift esc, but anyway i know cortana is the search process so i ended it and then used search and it restarted itself and now it is working. now if only i could figure out why devices and printers take a few minutes to load vs my 7
