    When I do a search in a folder, I get results back that have nothing to do with what I searched for.

    anyone know how to fix?

    Edit: If I set "name:" without the quotes before a search I get what I'm looking for. How do I set that as default behavior?

    Hi, I found easier way to fix the indexing issue.

    When I got the persistent "We're getting search ready" message, I just create new (temp) user, then login using the new user (I used Administrators group, you can try with normal user first). The message "We're getting search ready" will still appear for a while, just wait... Not long after that the message will be recovered (You can check the Indexing options while waiting for this).

    Sign out and login to your original user (will also fixed), feel free to delete the temp user and profile after that.

    Hope this help.


    The bug was fixed in Win10 Pro build. I had no such problem on my machine.

    I give up. No one seems to know how to fix my problem. I'm just going to disable indexing.

    I have the same problem as you, with the same setup!

    Have we figured a work around?

    Clicked "Change date, time or number formats" on the left hand side

    Went to the Administrative Tab

    Clicked "Copy Settings"

    Selected both the checkboxes and clicked OK to copy the display language settings to both the welcome screen and new user accounts.

    After a reboot and a 5 minute wait, I could search for "Check for Updates" from the start menu.

    I tried all of the methods presented here and none work.

    My issue:
    The start menu could search and return items that I wanted, but I had a constant 'these results may be incomplete' at the top (which wasn't really a problem, but annoying all the same). I also couldn't search within 'Settings', and it said 'search results aren't quite ready yet', which never corrected itself.

    Unsuccessful attempts:
    Multiple registry edits, creating a new user, and rebuilding the index did nothing.

    The problem is now solved thanks to a user (Steve Jo) on Microsoft Answers:

    1) Open CMD as administrator (admin may not be required)
    2) Type: Lpksetup /u
    3) This opens a dialogue which displays the user languages installed. If you have duplicate languages (English in my case) then uninstall one of them (I only had the option to uninstall one, with a checkbox, I guess the other was my default language and couldn't be removed).
    4) Click next, the program uninstalls the language which took about 10 seconds.
    5) Once you do this is will prompt you to restart.

    Do that and everything is working and fine. Although this helped me, there seems to be no single correct solution so this will probably only help a handful of people.

    Hi there. This acctually helped me (admin account). Search results for settings are still a little shaky but work mostly. Strangely enough it isn't working for the 2nd user (standard account). MS really has to get its shit together :/

    Thanks again.
