Useful tips from (c) Microsoft:

Hide content What does it mean when I see a message that search results might be slow?
It means that the location you're searching isn't indexed. Normally, you get search results quickly because the search includes only the locations on your Windows-10 computer that are indexed. If you change the locations that are being searched, or if you open a folder that's not in the index and search there, the search will take longer. Searches outside of the index only look for files by file name, but index searches on  Windows-10 also look for file contents and an assortment of file properties. If you frequently see this message when searching a specific location on your  Windows-10 computer, you should add that location to the index.

Show content Hide content What does it mean when I see a message that search results might be incomplete?
It means that the files are still being indexed. To perform fast and accurate searches,  Windows-10 collects information about files on your computer. This information is stored in the index. Periodically,  Windows-10 needs to update the index. If you perform a search while the index is being updated, the results might be out of date.
