    'Search Windows' option not finding select few programs


    When pressing windows key and searching for programs, it finds almost all the ones I have installed except from the one I actually want to find, the app is Discord.

    I've tried modifying the indexing and making sure its added but to no avail, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    Windows Charms Search not finding programs

    I've installed some programs like Telegram and Foxit PDF reader.

    When I press windows key and type their names in the search bar, nothing comes up. All the programs are correctly installed and I can find them in my Start Menu folder. I can also run them by running their *.exe

    I've checked with my other PC (which runs Windows 10) but that computer can find the programs.

    For my indexing options, the included locations are:

    • Desktop Background
    • Program Files
    • Program Files (x86)
    • Start Menu
    • Start Menu Places
    • Users /ex AppData

    Please advise what's wrong! :'(
