Windows Search (Index) can cause high load situations on Windows 10 machines — and on previous versions of Windows as well — especially when search indexing runs.
Basically, what search indexing does is scan all folders that are configured for indexation on the Windows device to add, change and remove the index to take into account file changes in those locations.
While that works well on many devices, it may cause big performance issues on others. It depends on factors such as the speed of the processor and hard drive, the selected folders and the files they contain, and the number of changes since the last indexing process.
Generally speaking it is a good idea to turn Windows Search indexing off if you don’t search often, or use a different desktop search program for that instead.
Turning off indexation does not mean that Windows Search won’t work at all, it just means that it may be slower when you run searches.
