comment Cannot add items to start menu in Windows 10
Also, For What It's Worth, after I couldn't solve this issue for a week or more, I started using ClassicShell to replace my start menu. It is an excellent program and has been working so well, I forget I don't have the native start menu anymore: classicshell.net

I haven't got an answer yet to this issue. But I asked a similar question that might be related that seems to have solved a lot of people's issues (but not mine :-( ). Give some of the solutions here and it might help you: superuser.com/questions/950009/…

comment Cortana Search is not finding applications on Windows 10
Yeah, exactly. I still am having issues with this. At this point I think this is a bug in Windows 10 and will hopefully be fixed as a patch. I may as well mark this as the fix, even though it is not 100%

I had high hopes for this fix! Unfortunately, for me it did not work. In fact, now I have a permanent "We're getting search ready..." notification at the top of the search area. I will try and reboot later and see if it makes a different.

Great find! I really wanted this to work for me. But it didn't. I'm happy this solved it for you, hopefully this helps other people, too.

Re-indexing ultimately didn't work for me, either. It found some of the missing apps. But most of them are still gone (like all the office apps)

comment Block/Remove “Web”/Bing Search from Windows 10
That second option seems to be gone in the full release.

Nope. If I type "mspaint" it finds "Paint, Run Command". Let me see if i can find the search settings and see if something isn't checked correctly. (edit: there doesn't seem to be an option for this)

comment Windows 10 Multiple Desktop Affinity for processes
How does the lack of desktop affinity for new windows possibly help you control your workflow? I only see it as a detriment. What would break about your workflow if you had desktop affinity for new windows?

comment Windows 10 Multiple Desktop Affinity for processes
That's not very helpful. What is the justification for having the feature work this way? Perhaps I am missing an obvious use case.

comment Windows 10 Multiple Desktop Affinity for processes
The "fix" would be to have desktop affinity for child windows of a process, so that you could quickly bounce between desktops. Perhaps the virtual desktops on Linux and Mac work exactly this way already. I don't know. Seems like an easy and obvious productivity improvement, to me.

Really not an OST file

comment Outlook 2010 Is Recreating PST In Old Location When Trying to Move
Yes, I can add the moved PST file. But at that point it is just an outlook data file not associated with an email account. IE -- new email will not go into that folder.

I am not confusing them. This is a PST file for a live IMAP account.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was hopeful. But it did not help. The results were the same.

comment How to make Notepad++ take over from the standard notepad.exe
It is worth noting that to make this work in windows 7, you must run notepad++ as an Administrator. Otherwise you can make these changes all day long, but it never works.
