No shortcuts for programs on fresh windows (programs on seperate disk)

Joveice
 Share

Hello,

 

I reinstalled my windows 10 and I installed all the programs on it's own disk. under install I checked that I wanted a shortcut in startmenu but not on the desktop (which worked for most).

But some did not, so If I press WIN and type "team" teamspeak should come up, but if I search "ts3client_win64.exe" which is the full file name it still doesent show up.

 

My programs are installed on drive P and every program has a shortcut in the startmenu folder (some are in folders under that). and in my search settings I have added to search the disk P.

 

Whats going on here?

Just double checking, but you reinstalled all of the programs after reinstalling Windows? Or you only reinstalled Windows?

Someone know? It's frustrating and my google searches says "You need to reindex" well I have done that a few times now.

Was the P: drive formatted after re-installing Windows while logged in to the new Windows installation? If not, you may need to retake ownership of the drive and contents, either of the following from an Administrator Command Prompt should fix it:

 

takeown /F P:\ /A /R /D Y
icacls P:\ /setowner "Administrators" /T /C

Do I need to reindex after that? if not it dident work.

 

Does you or somebody know the normal amount of files indexed on a clean system? I got 500k after my last rebuild

With default locations on my work laptop I have less than 9,000 items indexed.

Huh that makes this even more special.

 

As you can see here, I have my shortcuts those works. I have the programs in the programs list. but If I search for it > Nope (500k files indexed)
