    Searching stopped working in Outlook 2013


    (Maybe a repost. Sorry for any confusion.)

    I have Office 2013 Plus Pro installed on a Windows 10 64 Pro System. Recently search stopped working for all Outlook parts: email, tasks, contacts, etc. So I redid the index using the Control Panel Indexing applet.

    What I don't understand is that before I redid the index, the system had about 731,000 items indexing. After the re-indexing was complete, there were only 583,000 items indexed. Outlook is definitely one of the areas being indexed.

    What should I do here?

    Windows 10 "Search Windows" not searching Outlook 2013 content

    I have recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Within Windows 7 I could search ALL content from a single search option, it would search folder content and Outlook 2013 content, happy days Searching stopped working in Outlook 2013 :) What I am finding within Windows 10 is that if I want
    to search Outlook 2013 content, I have to explicitly use Outlook to search for the content. If I want to search for file content, then I have to use the "Windows Search" facility.

    Is there anyway to get "Windows Search" to also search and return results from Outlook 2013 content? Before anybody asks, yes Indexing is complete. If I check the search options within Outlook 2013 I can see within the Indexing Options that the Outlook
    content is selected. Curiously though, when I check the same Indexing Options from Control Panel I don't see Outlook listed! Could this be the reason, or is there a design reason to split the search facility?

    Thanks

    Gavin

    Windows 10 search not indexing Outlook 2013, no search results

    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in using Windows 10.

    Let's diagnose the issue by referring to the following suggestion and check if that helps you.

    First of all, I would suggest you to check if the
    Windows Search
    Service is running in Automatic mode under the list of Windows services. You can follow the steps to check and start the
    Windows Search again:

    • Press Windows+R keys to open Run. Type “servces.msc” without quotes and hit
      Enter.
    • From the list of services, locate the Windows Search Support Service
      and Windows Search Service.
    • Right click on the Windows Search Service
      and then click on Properties.
    • Check if the service is running. If not, start the service and change the
      Startup type to Automatic.
    • Follow the same steps to start the Bluetooth service
      and change the startup type to Automatic.
    You can also try the following suggestion.

    Run the Search and Indexing troubleshooter. Follow the steps mentioned below.

    • Press “Windows key + W”.
    • Type “Troubleshooting” without quotes in the Search box and hit enter.
    • Select “View all” option from the left panel.
    • Select “Search and Indexing”.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.
    Hope this information helps you. Please do let us know if you need further assistance.
