I've been disabling disk indexing and Windows Search since back in XP and Vista. The main reason being; I already know where my important files are, and also know how to do a simple Google Search for any system-specific files I may need. And because of that, I don't really need something taking up memory and system resources in the background. I think as of 8.1 (or 8), getting rid of Search wasn't as-simple as unchecking a box, but you could remove it with DISM. And as of 10 TP build 9888, you could still remove it that same way. Also starting with 8 or 8.1, the search box on Explorer windows (and Modern UI) aren't removed either when Search is removed, and I'm pretty sure they're non-functional. And something a bit minor (but annoying nonetheless), the Search folder in the User folder keeps reappearing after being deleted, even when no searching is being done. I'm wondering, do people still use Search/Indexing? Or do you remove it? And does the Search/Indexing features really have a use for someone like me who just knows where their files are at?
