Windows 10: Some Control Panel options are not indexed Solved

    Some Control Panel options are not indexed


    I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro on my desktop with all updates installed. I like to use Cortana to quickly get to settings and apps, but I noticed for some reason I can't find every system setting via Cortana. For example, searching for "updates" on my wife's laptop brings up "Check for updates" and takes her to Windows Update, but when I search for "updates" on my desktop it only finds web results. Even doing a search for "updates" from within the system settings window doesn't find the setting.

    After some searching I believe I've found the problem. The indexing for settings search appears to be in this folder: C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexe d\Settings\en-US. When I search for "updates" in this folder on my desktop there are no results, but on my wife's laptop there is a result for "Check for updates." It appears my index is missing several features for some reason. How can I fix this? Does rebuilding the index from the advanced Indexing Options also rebuild the system settings index or is there a separate process for this?

    I found the solution myself. Rebuilding the index from advanced Indexing Options and restarting fixed the problem.
