    issues with installed programs not showing up in search


    I have found a few threads on here and other sites to try and fix it, but no such luck. I am not hitting that old 512 app limit, as I only have 242 installed:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-StartApps | measure


    Count : 242
    Average :
    Sum :
    Maximum :
    Minimum :
    Property :


    I also have tried rebuilding index, and removed everything and set to default. This does still include my start menu icons, which have apps. Any time I search though, NO app is found. Any ideas?

    ...........I have found a few threads on here and other sites to try and fix it, but no such luck...............

    Have you tried :
    1.Looking for corrupt files by running System file check ( sfc /scannow ) in elevated command prompt ?
    2. Create another user account of same privileges > logon to it > and see if the search option function properly ?

    Nice, just tried running this in elevated powershell, fixed it:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
