Windows 7: Disable search indexing

The "Windows Search Indexing" service once in XP was renamed to "Windows Search". Disabling this via "services.msc" (the Services Manager) will not break your search functionality, only the indexing.

You can also disable it via the options in:

  • Windows Explorer
  • "Tools" menu
  • "Folder Options"
  • "Search" tab
  • Select "Don't use the index when searching the file system"
