How to Rebuild Search Index File in Windows 10

Windows 10’s search function is one of the most powerful tools in the operating system. Users can easily search for files, programs, and settings straight from the desktop.

To fix this issue and to include additional locations, you’ll need to rebuild the index file. Here’s how.

 

Rebuild the Search Index File Step 1

If you recently purchased or built a new PC, or upgraded an older PC, the most important thing to do aside from stress testing is to benchmark.

The Best Torrent Clients of 2018

Torrents have gotten a bad rap over the years as a platform for sharing illegal movies, music, TV shows, and software, but they have quite a few legitimate uses as well. For example individual developers, content creators and non-profit organizations can simply set up a Torrent, share it with a couple people and let it self propagate, significantly reducing the cost overhead of purchasing file hosting or content delivery.

However, unlike traditional file delivery methods such as through HTTP/HTTPS or through FTP, in order to download a Torrent file, a Torrent client is needed and of course not all Torrent clients are created equal. As such, today we’ll be [...]
