    I'm using the non web version of the search and all my apps/programs are showing up in there.

    The exe's for Office 2013 are located here:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15

    i have other exe files on c: that won't show up as well, and exe files on other drives with the same issue

    I'm trying to understand what you are doing, please humor me.

    You had win 7, then you did an upgrade to 10 from within 7, correct ?
    Then did you do a clean install of 10 after ?
