    Searching from Start menu: unfathomable behaviour


    If I search for "so" in the Start menu, I get the sound settings suggested. If I search for "soun" in the Start menu, I get a different result, even though both results contain both "so" and "soun". Why aren't both results presented? That would be ideal. Is there a way to get the search function to perform as expected and present all matching results including both the sound settings and the "Sound Deck" program for both querries "so" and "soun"? Thanks.

    Hi, Yes. I tried changing my primary SSD from MBR to GPT via Ease Us Partition Tool. All my other drives besides the main successfully converted but not my primary disk. When the application was trying to convert the disk I received a Kernal In Page Error.
    Hope this helps!
