[Windows 10] Search not finding options from "Settings"-App

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

I've got a pretty specific problem.

After I upgraded to Windows 10 I dialed in my settings like I want them to be, this includes also removing some folders from Indexing for the search (btw, I did this on all my pcs and notebooks, and only on my main system this problem occured).

The first day worked fine, but since after when I search for options from the settings-app they won't show up, neither in start menu search nor in settings-app search itself, only settings from the old control panel appear.

I can acces those options in the settings-app, but I dont want to have to click through those menus all the time, I just want to search for what I need and get to open it.

 

What I tried thus far:

- sfc /scannow

- troubleshooting for Indexing, which comes up with incorrect permissions for the search folder what I cant seem to be able to fix

- rebuilding index

- reregistering the settings-app

- creating a new user in hope for recreating the search

 

It is almost impossible to search for this specific problem, so I hope someone can help me with this one, since the last thing I want to do now, is reinstalling windows because of a faulty index.

Not sure if this is the same problem as I was having, but this post might help fix it... If it doesn't, sorry  :P !
