Much as I love Outlook, it’s a royal PITA after an update. For reasons known only to those Redmond hipsters creating the code, every time it updates it also wipes my Outlook search cache – so when, as I did this morning, I need to find a specific invoice it returned zero results.
In fact, every time I searched for anything I received no results. From past experience, the Outlook search cache will return at some point – a day later, perhaps – but only in its own time, thank you very much.
But, you can force it to rebuild the cache so you can find search results once more. Here’s how.
First, press the Windows key and type “indexing options”.
Then click Advanced.
And then click Rebuild.
It will take a while, but at least you’ll avoid that dreaded “Zero results” message.
