Hello fellow Windows 10 users! I've upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro. Everything is fine and Windows are working very smooth and nice. But there is one thing that really bothers me: Windows Search (including Cortana) does not find links to programs inside the Start Menu.

Now before you ask, I have re-built the Windows Indexer. Several times. I've also checked to see that .lnk files are being indexed. The Start Menu Folders (inside the c:\\Program Data\ and c:\\users\[username]\App Data\) are both being selected as index locations. Actually, the search is able to find folders inside the Start Menu files, but not the files themselves.

It is really bothering me, as I've been using this search feature in Windows 7 quite a lot to quickly launch any program I want.

Here's some video proof of what's happening and what's not:

Thank you in advance.
