  • why fonts does not appear in the search result when I open the settings ? – William Sep 23 '15 at 23:54

Try this to fix your search:

Win+R then type rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL srchadmin.dll

This will open indexing options. Once open, click "Advanced"

Then rebuild your index:

(I might restart after rebuilding the index, by the way)

If that doesn't work, you could always try running sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt by searching cmd then pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

  • Thanks, one question please just for information where Windows store indexing information for files and folders ? – William Sep 24 '15 at 0:55

    Windows.edb is the database file of the indexing service located at: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows. (Source) – Insane Sep 24 '15 at 2:12

Get the Run box with Win+R and type shell:fonts.
