    W10: Search in "pinned to start" apps doesn't work

    Hello, I have a few portable apps, which I have pinned to start.

    Now I need to show these apps to show when I type their names in search, but it just doesn't show any of these apps. Search for properly installed apps works flawlessly same as for system settings.

    How can I pin portable apps to be able to be shown up in search results? Or am I doing anything wrong?

    Hello and thank you for your reply This update was automatically installed 1 week ago (Screenshot by Lightshot) and it doesn't solve anything for me :/ I tried reindexing too, but still nothing...

    Same exact problem here, the search function in Windows 8 was perfect, in 8.1 it was not as good (in regards to using it for starting your standard apps) and in Windows 10 it is ruined :/

    Hope someone finds a solution or an Windows Update fixes this. Tired of not being able to just my keyboard and search in order to start wanted apps easily. :)

    Works for me only when I left click of start icon and choose search but not with search in taskbar.

    Just so you know I have disable cortana as I do not see a point of it on a PC.

    Worked perfectly when I left click of start icon and choose search but not with search in taskbar.

    Now strange thing is that search works only to certain Windows 10 files/programs only with me.

    Has anyone found a solution ?
