    Hi,

    When I press win-q to search and run any program i cannot search for my office apps... pretty weird. I already checked the search indexing and changed a few folders... but still nothing.

    Please help :)

    thanks.

    greetz,

    I was able to fix it by resetting my "Indexed Locations" to the Windows defaults (Right-click start button -> Control Panel -> Indexing Options -> Modify).

    Include only:

    Offline Files
    Start Menu (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\)
    Users (C:\Users\ but excluding C:\Users\<username>\AppData)


    Finally I triggered a rebuild of the index (Right-click start button -> Control Panel -> Indexing Options -> Advanced -> Rebuild).

    After a reboot and waiting a little while for things to re-index the start menu is returning correct results as quickly as I can type!
