How to exclude Outlook results from the Start Menu search in Windows 7


If you are using Microsoft outlook as your Email client you would have noticed when you search from your Start button Outlook search results appear. Sometime it gets really irritating when we are searching for something specific and irrelevant outlook searches block the space. Outlook itself had very good search workflow integrated. My personal feeling is that we don't need it unless we are searching mails everyday from start menu. In this post we will see how we can remove outlook results from Windows 7 Start Menu search.

Have picked the following image from google search just to demonstrate how the results appear - 

Excluding Outlook results from Start Menu Search

  1. Click in Start button.
  2. Search for indexing options and click on it.

  3. Select Modify.
  4. Uncheck Microsoft outlook and press ok.

  5. Close the indexing options box.
  6. Outlook searches should no longer appear in Win 7 start menu searches.
