    App missing in "Windows Search"


    Hi,

    I've got a VM running Windows Server 1607, which I am using at work. On the VM, I have installed my usual bunch of develope applications, like 7-Zip, Keepass, SoapUI, Postman, and so on. All of them are visible in the start menu, as they should.

    However, at least some of them aren't available in Windows search. For example, if I press the Windows key, and enter "po", then I am offered Powershell, but not "Postman".

    Any ideas, what might be wrong?

    Thanks,

    Jochen

    :)

    App Icons Missing

    Hi Donna,

    Corrupted applications are the possible causes why your program icons are missing after an update. To isolate your issue, we'd like to clarify a few things:

    • When you hover your mouse over your taskbar or Start menu, are you seeing the icons for your apps?
    • Have you tried searching for a specific app and check if it will appear on the search results?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you repair and reset your applications using the steps shared by Meliton Dec on this

    thread
    about restoring missing apps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
