    Procedure for indexing PDF files on Windows 7?

    I want to index files on my laptop upgraded to Windows 7. But when I try to check the file types under advanced options in indexing options, I get the message “Registered Ifilter is not found”. How can I correct this issue and perform indexing on PDF files?

    You need to add PDF files into index so that they will appear under file types. Click on the ‘Start’ button and select ‘Control Panel’ from the start menu. Type indexing options into the search box and click on ‘Indexing Options’ option. Press the ‘Advanced’ button and type in the password or provide confirmation if prompted. The ‘Advanced Options’ dialog box will then pop up on the screen from which press the ‘File Types’ tab. Enter the file name extension into the ‘Add new extension to list’ box and click on ‘Add’ button. After that, you need click on either ‘Index Properties Only’ or ‘Index Properties and File Contents’ option and press the ‘OK’ button.

    Hi.
    You need to change the baseline function of Search.

    >Type “indexing options” in the search bar and hit enter once it is selected.
    >Choose “Advanced” and the “File Types” tab.
    >Find the PDF extension from the top window and highlight it. (and any others you want.)
    >Make sure the radio button is set to “Index Properties and File Contents”.

    Thank you.
