    I run Windows 10 Home on a Dell Inspiron laptop. Right now, I'm trying to install the KDE Connect app. When I try to add it to Windows Firewall, the "Search" function doesn't detect the relevant file which exists in the "WindowsApps" folder, according to Search Everywhere. However, the "Search" function doesn't list the "WindowsApps" folder, so I can't add the function to the firewall. How do I proceed?

    :)

    It is already installed. In accordance with your suggestion, I have created a folder for it under Program Files and moved it there. Thanks. I would still be interested in understanding why I cannot get access to the WindowsApps folder, even after following all the steps I can follow online. Any insights please?

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
