Can I get the Apps Search to show hits for partial matches_ RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Why do I have to enter the full name of an app in the search term of Apps Search in the start menu of Windows 8? For instance, I have installed "Tweetro". Search for "Twee" , "Tweet" or "Tweetr" results in 0 hits. Only "Tweetro" gives me the hit. Is there any way to configure this to report partial hits as well? 

    Edit: I see from this blog post that he gets a hit on "Microsoft Word 2010" when searching for "Win". What? Why? And have they changed the functionality? I too have Word installed, but does not get a search hit on "win".

    I'm running Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation
