Indexing Options

To add a file type to the index

If you use an unusual file type that’s not currently recognized by the index, you can add it to the index so you can search in Windows by that file type.

Click to open Indexing Options.

Click Advanced.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

In the Advanced Options dialog box, click the File Types tab.

In the Add new extension to list box, type the file name extension (for example, “txt”), and then click Add.

Click Index Properties Only or Index Properties and File Contents, and then click OK.

To rebuild the index
The index requires almost no maintenance. However, if the index can’t find a file that you know exists in an indexed location, you might need to rebuild the index. Rebuilding the index can take several hours, and searches might be incomplete until the index is fully rebuilt.

Click to open Indexing Options.

Click Advanced.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

In the Advanced Options dialog box, click the Index Settings tab, and then click Rebuild.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
