Windows 7: Lots of files/application are not being indexed in Window's Search!!!!

Lots of files/application are not being indexed in Window's Search!!!!

It's really frustrating searching for a document I need for school in the Window's search in the start menu and it not being found. But I know for a fact I made the files and where it is, in my Documents. Window's index is just really annoying it basically doesn't index any of my created documents, most of my application/programs I use are not being index.

How do I choose to index what I want, and make sure the documents etc. are being indexed!?!!?

Hi michaelsp9

Type "indexing options" into the start menu.All the options your looking for are there to choose what is indexed.

Although I think documents are usually selected by default but have a look yourself
