    Sometimes when I search forsomething from the start menu, windows finds nothing, even if the program is installedon my computer. e.g if I search for "Warcraft 3", windows will say that it found nothing even though the game is isntalled on my C drive. This is the case with many other programs/games as well.

    I had the same problem searching Windows if I had no internet connection with the Anniversary update 1607. The Creator update solved my "Windows Search" I can now search Windows and its not dependent on an internet connection. What version of Windows are you running and are you searching "Windows" or the "Internet" ?
