    Windows cannot find apps / programs


    Apps / programs have started to disappear. Then when I download them again I get notified that Windows cannot find them, even when they are staring me in the face. What is going on?

  2. I cannot find Apps or Programs by using the taskbar search.

    SearchUI.exe may sometimes be overwritten by a malware. Sometimes, it's also disabled by a virus. just to be sure, do a full system scan using malwarebytes. it's free, just download it from their websute.

    Hello, MichaelLF412,

    Windows Search may be disabled on your device. To enable it, read the following instructions:

    1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key and the R key at the same time. Wait for a box called Run to open.

    2. Type in services.msc and press Enter.

    3. The Services page will open. Press the W key and locate Windows Search.

    4. Right-click it, and click on Properties.

    5. Change the Startup Type to Automatic.

    6. Press Apply.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, exactly how are you trying to find that? Assuming that's a file explorer search, can you post a screenshot of file explorer showing the file that you say is visible, the search string and the error. Thanks.
