    Prevent windows from search in files when searching in the Start Menu


    Hello.
    when i search from the start menu, all i want to find is applications (desktop apps, metro apps, shortcus to apps in the all-applications menu) and settings, not files and folders.
    (i already disabled the web search there).
    i still want to be able to search files when searching from antoher places, just not when searching from the start menu, so disabling the index is not an option for me.
    how do i do this?
    thank you

    In Classic Shell Settings -> Search Box tab, uncheck "Search files".
