I have used Outlook 2010 since 2016. When I searched my emails, Outlook always returned recent emails first, starting from the current date. However, that changed after a recent Windows 10 update.

Outlook search now returns emails from January 2017 first. Then it searches backwards through 2016. Then it searches forward through 2017 and 2018.

I would like Outlook to search recent emails first, starting from the current date and going backwards through time. I have tried deleting and rebuilding the index, but that has not fixed the issue. Any ideas?

Thank you for your help!
