    After I asked for solution here and on MS' official support forum, this issue was not resolved, until today I read this article:

    Fix search does not work in PC Settings app in Windows 10

    http://winaero.com/blog/fix-search-d...in-windows-10/

    and it DID fix my issue.

    This fixed mine also. Was driving me nuts. Thank you!!

    I had the same problem and the only solution that worked was this one:

    How can I make Windows 10 search my settings/control panel items? - Super User

    it will reset the index folders so you may have to add them back.

    Search needs to index sthg in Users in order to index Settings. If you change this in Control Panel, Indexing Options, it will cause a problem like this.
