Windows 7: WLMail and indexing options

24 Feb 2010   #1

WLMail and indexing options

In Indexing Options, on the change/modify applet, there is a PREDEFINED entry for Windows Live Mail that points to the C:\...appdata... folder for indexing.

I've moved the mail store to a different drive and, obviously, that WLM entry in Indexing Options remains. I can see no way to DELETE that entry (or correlate it with where I HAVE moved the WLMail stores).

Yet, when I moved my favorites folder from C: to D:, Indexing Options HAS followed it to the new location. Nice and consistent.

Any suggestions on how to more closely manage the Indexing Options ENTRIES?

I think I get it.

The "Windows Live Mail" entry is simply the NAME of the FOLDER that's being indexed. I thought it was like a predefined entry like "Internet Explorer History". If you UNcheck the WLM folder tickmark, it immediately removes the WLM entry in the lower pane.

Then, selecting where your WLM store NOW is, will then add that to the lower pane.

User error (misunderstanding). Closed.

W7 Indexing Options question
When I press the Start button and enter, say, "test" a word that is in many of my documents, nothing appears above as it used to with Vista. Perhaps I have Indexing Options set incorrectly? (see attachment) Suggestion please, Thanks, Kerry Windows 7 Home Premium
