Start menu search not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. Can someone please help me out, because something is really bothering me.

    I had this problem on my previous Windows installation, so I decided to reinstall, it needed some cleaning up anyway.
    However, the problem I had has returned.

    When I go to start, and you type something, you can search, right? However it is not searching my installed applications like Steam or Word. It does search on the internet but not on my computer. Does anyone know what is causing this?

  • I noticed that after using a Watermark remover to remove the Windows 10 watermark this problem occured. 

    It is most likely fixed by a sfc /scannow.

  • Florius,

    Thanks for your sharing.

    So now we are OK to use the Search to find Steam or Word?

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to post in TechNet.
