I loved the search functionality within Windows 7.  It worked beautifully for me.  I even abandoned Google Desktop Search, which I had been a huge fan of in Windows XP days.  I now find that the product has been discontinued.

Windows 8 and Windows 10 Search is just not doing it for me.  Win10 Search is less horrible than 8, but not much.  Plus I want to be able to index network locations which Win10 does not seem to allow.

What is everyone else using if not the baked-in stuff?  I'll Google if required of course but in this case am looking for recommendations.

What problem are you actually trying to solve?

What content are you trying to search?

Fair question.

- I would like to have documents on a network drive indexed.
- Search results including Outlook items would be nice
- I remember the layout of the Win7 search results more fondly than what I am seeing now in Win10.

Thanks, but I need content indexed as well.

X1 (from x1.com).
Has been the best "real" search tool since ... well, forever. Worth every penny.
