    Hello,
    when I enter some words in the startmenu search box, I get some Outlook
    2007 EMails, Word documents, favorites, programs, whatever results,
    directly in the startmenu.

    I am a amateur developer and create a folder on drive D: "Projects". I
    had add this folder and subfolders with the system control to the
    search index. C , H, and other files from visual studio, (properties
    and content, plain text filter)
    When I now enter a string in ther explorer search field it show me this
    files in the explorer as search results. Therefore I think the files
    inside the folder are included in the search index.

    But why they are not displayed directly in the startmenu? I must always
    click on "Search everywhere" first.

    Do you have the 'Search whole index' option enabled at this particular
    location? If not, enable it.

    Right-click Start button > Properties > Customize

  3. You say that you are indexing drive H as well? I assume that drive H is a
    plug & play storage device?
