I did a rebuild of the indexing, and still no success. The only thing that I did in the interim, if memory serves correctly, was install OpenOffice 5.4.0. One other thing worth mentioning is that in some places online it is recommended to run the LibreOffice installer as administrator (the same is recommended for OpenOffice). I might have done so had right-click run as administrator been an option, but it was not as is sometimes occurring with msi installer packages
There is an automatic registry fix which would have added that option, and another complementary fix to remove the option from registry. I ran that by my local technician, but he insisted that LibreOffice did not need to be installed as administrator.
One other thing. In the indexing menu it shows that the local C Drive is included in indexing. Does this mean that the desktop is included as well?
I would appreciate any help/
LibreOffice by default saves to ODF, and when I checked in the indexing options, ODF was included.
One of the files that doesn't show up was a notepad file (TXT), and other notepad files show up just fine when I search.
Often, in the past, I would search by a keyword in a file, rather than by the file's name, and there was no problem. It worked the same way in Windows 7 until a couple of days ago.
Since I posted a few more files went missing. Doing some more research, I went into Windows Explorer, clicked on C: Drive, then Users, then Main User. There, under My Documents I found the more recently "disappeared" files, but not the earlier missing file that prompted this inquiry. The point is that even though these files are clearly on my computer, searching does not bring them up. Any ideas?
Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth.

It loaded up with his name and stuff, but sometimes his original background wouldn't load up.
This would happen intermittently, it was most problematic whenever he had scanned a document and it wouldn't show up...
Not sure if this is what you are encountering, but it could be. link
