Windows 7: Search not searching inside docx files

10 Jan 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Search not searching inside docx files

Other files seem to be fine. This is true for searching one word or a phrase. I've tried the following:
  • Made sure docx in the File Types list
  • Index Properties and File Contents is checked.
  • Rebuilt Index 3 times
  • Checked permissions on all the directories.
  • Always search file names and contents is selected under Folder Options.

I don't know what else to do.
