    I'm assuming you've indexed all the drives you want to be included in Search Options. Even then, I've noticed that Cortana won't display results for .exe files that are not in the Programs List as well as many other file types. Just use Everything if you want a reliable search for everything.
    Yeah, I put my SSD and HDD as the index, everything is checked but it isn't looking for everything

    Instead of struggling with Cortana and Windows Search my preference is to use 2 third party software. I set one to only search my C drive and the other to only search my second drive. Both Everything and UltraSearch can search both drives if wanted, with UltraSearch you can very quickly include and exclude drives from the search Both are small, fast, reliable, very efficient and free

    Everything Search
    UltraSearch

    Good luck :)
    I agree. Cortana is 100% useless. I disable that ditz as soon as I install Windows 10 on all machines and install Everything and give it the Cortana icon

    Stop using Cortona, index only indexes the files and folders for you to search through the File Explorer window, not Cortana. A suggestion was made above to try Everything Search, which you can find at majorgeeks.com.
