Outlook 2013 and Search Indexer

Posted on 2013-08-31

I'm running Outlook 2013.  I recently had to reinstall MS Office to try and fix a non-functional SearchIndexer (which, by the way, didn't work - Microsoft had me reinstall the Office 365  program after trouble-shooting, but it still doesn't work).  

Now, when I open a Contact, the bottom of the screen (containing the address) is cut off, and I can't find a View setting to make the whole page fit (this was never a problem prior to the reinstallation).

Please help.

I have Office 2013 and both search and contacts work properly. It is possible the reinstall by Microsoft went wrong. You should be able to uninstall, and then reinstall on your own to see if yet another install may fix things.

What happens if you maximize the open contact?

Also, there are a number of recent updates to Office 2013.

Everything worked fine until a couple of weeks ago, at which time the SearchIndexer stopped working.  Maximizing the Outlook window doesn't help.  I'll try reinstalling MS Office myself to see if that helps.  I'll let you know.
