After checking for corrupt files (sfc /scannow in cmd returning no corrupt files detected) and rebuilding the index from index option in the control panel, notepad does not open from the Start menu.
I type 'notepad' into the search in the Start menu, and the notepad icon appears:
However, then I click on the icon, nothing happens.
I noted that this also happens to some other apps such as Snipping Tool and Paint, and that all these apps are in the Windows Accessories folder.
However, I can open these apps if I scroll down through the Start menu and access them from the Accessories folder:
How do I make it so that Notepad and all those other apps can open when I search for them?
