PyCharm indexes files outside of the project

If my project is located at C:\a\b\c\project, I see it indexing completely irrelevant stuff at C:\a\XYZ\etc. Right now it's indexing stuff inside some Google Chrome extensions directory. Seems like for some reason it wants to index like everything under my C:\Users\my_user directory.

Why would this be happening? How can I restrict it to only index within the project?


This is a problem when indexing since it takes forever, but it's also a problem when I want to switch files, and it shows me all kinds of irrelevant files.
