    Unable Search for .odt (Libre Office Docs) file formats using File Contents.


    I cannot figure out how I can make my Windows 10 search odt document (LibreOffice) file contents.

    When I use a keyword for the search, it finds only Microsoft Word document files which contain the keyword. The search does not find LibreOffice document files which contain the keyword.

    It does find LibeOffice document files by name, though.


    My desktop computer is Dell Inspiron.

    My Windows 10 is updated.

    This question is not about Cortana. It is about the search, "Type here to search" next to Start. It is about "Search in File Explorer."


    I have checked everything I know.

    Index Options:
    "odt" is selected under File Types. (As a matter of fact, all types are selected.)

    "Index Properties and File Contents" is clicked.


    After completing "Rebuild" and Restart the computer, Windows search still does not find odt document files which contain a keyword. It only finds odt files by name.


    I have even selected "Index encrypted files" under Index settings. The result, nevertheless, is the same.


    I have run the Index Troubleshooter and selected "Files don't appear in search results."

    It simply says, "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem."


    I have run the DISM Tool.

    I have also run the System File Checker utility.

    Windows search still fails to search odt document file contents.


    Does anyone know how to fix this? Or do I have to use a search engine app, instead?

    Odt file problem on X6 Quick Office

    I understand. But keep in mind that QO is 3rd party software. You've to file your complaints at QO. You can however save your .odt files as .doc in Open Office.

    Microsoft Unveils the New Office

    I use LibraOffice all the time, if you safe documents in rtf and spreadsheets in csv, both can be opened in pretty much any program. Also, Libraoffice allows you to save in Microsoft formats(doc/docx and xlx/xlsx) which obviously open natively in Office.

    Search Content of MHT files

    Hi David,

    Most probably, this is a problem with the search and indexing of your Windows 10 computer. For us to provide the best resolution possible, we would like to clarify the following:

    • Are you trying to search the content of MHT files using Cortana?
    • Have you tried searching it using the File Explorer?
    • Are you using a third-party app to search for the content of MHT files?

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the troubleshooter for search and indexing. To run the Search and Indexing troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Click Troubleshoot in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Find and fix other problems.
    • Select Search and Indexing and click Run the troubleshooter.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.
