Outlook compatibility, elevation, search RRS feed

  • Question

  • My employer has finally upgraded me from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

    Issue:  the default Outlook 2016 notification pop-up that appears in the lower right corner when new mail is received no longer displays the instant one-click Delete, etc. options that were provided on the Outlook 2010 new mail notification pop-up

    Partial solution:  the Windows 10 “Troubleshoot compatibility” option restored the Outlook 2010 style new mail notification pop-up

    Problem:  Search within Outlook displays the following errors:

    “Instant Search is not available when Outlook is running with Administrator permissions.”

    “Search performance will be impacted because the Windows Search service is turned off in elevated mode.”

    FWIW, Services shows that Windows Search is turned on, and I am NOT manually running Outlook with Administrator permissions, however it seems that “Troubleshoot compatibility” set that somewhere not visible (Outlook Properties > Shortcut > Advanced Properties > Run as administrator is unchecked), because Task Manager shows Elevated=Yes for OUTLOOK.EXE

    Is there any way to resolve this seeming mutual-exclusion between Outlook Search and Admin / elevated / the Outlook 2010 style new mail notification pop-up ?

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions

  • Hi,

     

    According to the error “Instant Search is not available when Outlook is running with Administrator permissions.”, please check this thread as reference:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2010-outlook/instant-search-is-not-available-when-outlook-is/84277d5e-9ccf-4c22-aff2-737a9c53d25f 

     

    To fix the issue “Search performance will be impacted because the Windows Search service is turned off in elevated mode.”, please turn to the "properties" of the Windows Search service, and then check "Allow service to interact with desktop" under the "login" tab.

     

    For further help, I suggest you submit a new case on Outlook forum as they will be more professional on your issue:

  • Sorry, for some reason I was just notified this morning of your April 4th response.

    And thank you for responding, but no, unfortunately your suggestion did not resolve my issue.  Outlook is still displaying “Instant Search is not available when Outlook is running with Administrator permissions”, and more importantly still providing incorrect search results. (Although I haven't seen, yet, the re-occurrence of “Search performance will be impacted because the Windows Search service is turned off in elevated mode”).

    I will submit a new case on the Outlook forum - thanks again.
