    Flash Player Settings Manager not showing up in search


    The Windows 10 search can be used to directly access most control panel apps by just typing in a keyword. Flash Player Settings Manager is a notable exception. Why isn't Flash Player Settings Manager showing up as an option when I type "Flash Player Settings Manager" into the search bar?

    That's not the only one that isn't picked up by Cortana.
    Examples from mine of others:
    Quicktime, Intelr Graphics Settings, Realtek HD Audio Manager

    But... I use Classic Shell start menu... why? 'cos it works a whole lot better... and its search (which also uses Windows search) finds all these including Flash.. e.g.
    Click image for larger version.

    How do we submit this as a Windows bug?

    You can try the Feedback app from the store, and posting on MS's technet.

    Do Microsoft personnel actually look at those places?

    Where on technet should I post?

    Those are support forums. They're to get help from Microsoft, not to give help to Microsoft.

    So if you don't want to use them (and MS people do respond) use the app.
