I have a simple request: to be able to exclude a folder (completely) from windows 7 indexing. That means, when I type something in the start menu, I don't even want file names to come up. It seems as far as I can get is having file content
not be indexed, but file properties,
including file names, are always indexed. I'd like to not have to disable indexing all together because it's very useful, but doesn't seem like it should be impossible to totally exclude a folder.
I'm a teacher, and I have lots of students work on my computer that they submit electronically, but I teach many technical tutorials with a projector, and it seems not good form to have students work show up when I have to search for projects to show for examples.
Most of all, it seems like this should not be too much to ask. Surely there is some registry work around now? any thoughts?
I'm using Windows 7 x64.
