comment How to Exclude folders from Windows 8 Search, not indexing (start menu)
Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case. Oh if only that were true. IMHO, the search feature shouldn't traverse anything that's not in the index at all. The way it ought (used?) to work is that if it's not indexed - don't list it. The way it seems to work on 8.1 is that if it's not indexed, then we'll just trawl the hard disk on your UI thread. Thanks guys! That's just busted. I've started moving all my files out of 'my documents' so I can bring it to a reasonable size that the indexer can handle, since windows will search it any any regard. Way to break the start menu guys. #fail

@snowdude I believe that's indexing not search. I can deselect AppData and I have deselected most of it and most of the other options. All that means is it won't use the index, but it'll still search AFAICT. NOT having things in the index makes it even worse because it still trawls all the files = that's the problem.

Thanks for the thought, but that won't fly because it's largely the start menu items I actually want to search when I'm on the start menu. I don't actually care that much if it doesn't find a single other file or library. I just want the start menu to work. The start menu is unusable unless it stops locking up explorer. Wierdly though, this has only been a problem since 8.1, 8 was fine.

Actually you don't need a third party tool (moved answer below for better formatting)
