Win10 – Missing Search Results Despite Indexing File Contents

You may have configured Windows Search to Index all hard drives/partitions. And also, to index properties as well as contents of files. But what I found incredibly stupid and irritating was that despite having indexed the contents of all files on my computer, I was still not getting results from my 500+ Word files. And I realized that it was because Windows Search does not appear to show search results from documents by default. It shows results from apps and settings, but not documents! So when you search, click on the inconspicuous button which says  “Find results in documents”!
