Any new shortcuts I add to the start menu fail to show up in the start menu search results. I've tried rebuilding the index to no avail.

Turns out the issue was due to having UAC disabled. To re-enable, simply toggle User Account Control: Run all administrators in admin approval mode in your Group Policy Editor (gpedit), otherwise if you're running Windows Home, open up regedit and enable (set to 1) EnableLUA under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System.
