Fixing the “We couldn’t find what you’re looking for” error in Outlook 2013

If you’re getting the irritating “We couldn’t find what you’re looking for” error, it can be frustrating to fix.

Ultimately I had to fix the problem from outside of Outlook. I went to my “Change how Windows Searches” option dialog and rebuilt the index. I tried the exact same thing from inside Outlook but nothing ever happened.

Important: Before getting this to work, I also removed Outlook as an indexed location, restarted my PC, and then re-added it. However, this only partially helped, and there was still stuff missing from the index.
