Why I Don’t Use Windows

If you are, for some reason, still using Windows, you might find this little movie worth your while. It turns out that the Windows Indexing Service — which appeared to just be a drag on system performance all these years — actually works.

It’s just that, to get Windows to use it, you have to prefix your query with an exclamation point in the search box. Because that’s obvious and convenient, not to mention well-documented. And because you’d want the default search behavior to be the slow and frustrating one.

jaw drop

I use that search function ALL the TIME, most often for something I did so long ago I can’t remember where I put it. Why did they not make it a CHECKBOX or something?! “Search using index”. Unbelievable.
