    I too suffer the same fate.
    Here is a thread I've been a part of for the last 2 weeks.
    error - Windows/Cortana Search - Windows 10 Forums
    The best solutions are in the last few pages, I made one as well.

    I have got the control panel back, but I still can't get the newer Windows Settings locations to search.
    We need better solutions and answers from microsoft

    Try turning on Cortana, it'll show what's on the PC first, then web.

    +1 And if I try to search from the settings app, I get nothing, but from control panel, lots of useful stuff. It used to be that results both those locations were included in the start bar immediately.

    I will say creating another account does seem to fix the issue.
