Update the index manually

You can update part or the entire index manually. This feature can be useful if you have not enabled the real time indexing feature, prefer not to have the index automatically updated, or you do not want to wait until the next scheduled update.

From the main window

  1. In the Tools menu, point to Update Index.

  2. To update the entire index, click Entire index. To update part of the index, select among: Emails, Files, Music, Pictures, Videos, Contacts, Favorites and History.

From the tray icon (System tray icon)

  1. Right-click the tray icon.

  2. Point to Update Index and then select Entire index or, to update only part of the index, select among: Emails, Files, Music, Pictures, Videos, Contacts, Favorites and History.

TIP: Select the search category that corresponds to the part of the index you want to update and press CTRL + F5.
