    Search & Index problem


    I have installed a program called Windows10 Manager.
    It has sub-program executables (independent of the main program)

    Search & Index problem [​IMG]

    I want to quick access them pressing the windows key and start typing their name which invokes suggestions.

    I have specifically indexed only this program and it's sub-programs within my windows partition (also indexed my data partition)

    Search & Index problem [​IMG]

    still I don't get these sub-programs while typing their names on the search bar.

    How can I solve this problem ?
    Does cortana search local files only within the indexed ones ?

    Hi Erik,

    System conflict is one of the possible reasons why the index built will not function properly. We suggest running the Search and Indexing troubleshooter by following these steps to resolve your issue:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooting.
    • Click on Troubleshooting.
    • Click on View all.
    • Select Search and Indexing and select the proper scenario that you are experiencing on indexing and click
      Next for the troubleshooting to begin.
    Update us with the outcome so we can provide you further assistance.

    Search & Index problem

    Windows 10 not displaying search results for indexed shortcuts in a folder.

    Thanks Deepika,

    I had tried running this troubleshooter before, but I've just run it again with "Files don't appear in search results" and "My problem isn't listed above" ticked, and it comes up with "Issue not present" against all potential issues, and "Troubleshooting
    couldn't identify the problem", even after troubleshooting as an administrator.

    I'd be glad of any other suggestions please!
