    First of all you have to tap on the ‘start menu’ of your Dell Inspiron laptop running on Windows 7 platform. Then you need to move on the ‘control panel’ of your system. Then you can go to the search box on the current screen you are in. You can type in ‘indexing options’ on the box and hit on it. After that you will have to go for the ‘advanced’ option. You can confirm with the ID and password if you are prompted to do so. Next you can tap on the option with the label ‘advance options’. There you need to choose the ‘index settings’ option. Finally you must hit on the ‘rebuild’ option to complete the action.

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Open the Control Panel (All Items view), and double click on the Indexing Options icon.
    >>Click on the Advanced button. (See screenshot below)
    >>If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.
    >>Click on the Rebuild button. (See screenshot below)
    >>Click on OK. (See screenshot below)
    >>After a moment, you will notice the index being rebuilt. Click on Close. (See screenshot below)
    NOTE: When the index is finished being rebuilt, you will see Indexing complete.

    Thank you.
