    Ah... though that said, I'd have thought start menu alone should have been enough.

    under start menu then advanced it now says 'c user' was that a mistake?

    if i made a mistake changing it, can i set index back to whatever its default was?

    currently the index location says 'C:\Users" it didnt say that earlier

    Literally paste this into file explorer's address bar
    C:\ProgramData

    Have you at some time modified Indexing Options?

    apologies. I mean i cant enter it into the field in the index where your says ' C:\ProgramData/Microsoft'

    i cant type or paste into that field. It forces me to use a tree but I dont see ProgramData


    yes i did modify them at some point

    This all seems like a lot of trouble!
    Why not just put a Firefox shortcut in the task bar? Simple. Guaranteed to work since 1995.
