    No, it's not more clear.

    To be sure my previous Putty installation does not affect testing portable, standalone Putty.exe, I downloaded it to a virtual machine which has never had any version of Putty. Straight after download was finished, I searched it. Putty was found as it should:

    It can also be added to Start:

    All my Portable Apps have been added to Start, either pinned as tiles (as demonstrated by Kari) or put in the All Apps list by adding a shortcut. Anything that's in Start will of course be found in a search.

    @Bree: Vulnerability...
    Yes, we need far safer systems, but be honest, in which form is Startisback a vulnerability...
    Or I must have missed something here...
    Once a version of Windows 10 reaches end of its supported lifetime (18 months after release) what you will miss is any fixes for subsequently discovered OS security vulnerabilities. XP/W7 and WannaCry is an example of what can happen then.

    So what?
    this is the behavior i experience with win 10, 1079 build SO 16299.125
    cortana disabled and web search disabled and other settings that are
    probably different than yours, and it does not find putty.
    Are you using 1079 build SO 16299.125? have you disabled cortana?
    have you disabled web search clearly not.
    So you are comparing probably two quite different situations.
    Is your configuration more relevant than mine?
    It does not work in my system, i have not disabled windows search
    nor tweaked any regedit, it worked in win 7/8.
    Shoud i not say this?

    So you disable things and wonder why they or stuff that depends on them are not working ?

    Yes, how can a local file search depend on a web search?
    If this is the case i apologize but AFAIK it is possible do to local
    search without web search.
    I'd like you explain to me because i miss the dependance.

    It's part of Cortana's job, but you can exclude web search from it:
