Windows 10: Start menu search not finding applications?
Start menu search not finding applications?
I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
However once i install programs like Office 2013 i can't find the application exe files by searching in the start menu.
If i search for outlook or word in the start menu nothing shows up, this was not an issue in Windows 7 or Windows 8.
Can anyone confirm if this is a general issue in Windows 10 or do i need to change a setting somewhere?
Your program's should be listed under all app's by clicking on the start button.
All app's, will be in the column on the left side at the bottom.
Click on All app's and it will list them in alphabetical order.
Thank you for your reply.
The programs are not listed in "all programs" i can however open them by navigating to the exe files in the directory in wich they are installed. From there i can pin them to the start menu, but it's not a very efficient way of managing programs
What version of office are you using. If the latest, do you have the desktop version installed or the web version?
I'm using Office 2013 Desktop version.
The problem is not limited to Office programs. I have the same issue with teamviewer, steam, games etc.
Spotify however is showing up trough start menu search, so it's not a problem with all programs
Do you have "All apps" listed after you click on the start button ?
Then a list of apps ?
As you can see Outlook 2013 does not show up under "O" in all apps.
OK, try to open any program that does not show now in all apps.
Just open it, don't pin it.
Then see if it show's up listed in all apps.
It does not, i tried with Word, Steam, and a couple of games with no luck
I've just upgraded yesterday from Windows 7 to Windows 10, operation went smoothly, after around an hour of additional configuration tasks I'm almost 'at home'. However what I noticed and is really confusing is that I have around 40...
In Windows 7 I type xxxx.txt and it searches the file in the indexed files.
In Windows 10 I have to type Find in Documents. How do I make it searches in my files without clicking a second time ?
I'm running the RTM on a netbook and have noticed that, unlike in Windows 7/8/8.1, I'm no longer able to hit Start and type in an executable. I have a bunch of portable apps that I typically type in and pull up. Now, the Start menu search pulls up...
For whatever reason I have lost the use of my Start Menu and Search function. Is there any way to get the 'Settings' page open without the Start Menu?
Winkey + I did it.
I recently had to reinstall (complete/clean install) W-10, and ever since then I cannot search from Start. I open the Start menu as normal, either by clicking the icon or by pressing the Windows key on my keyboard, but when I press any key...
