I am having an odd issue with Windows 10 and it seems to have started about a month ago. When opening an application, I usually just click in the Cortana search bar and type a few letters of the application I am wanting and Cortana usually finds the application I want, like in this image:
As you can see, just by typing "wo", it found the "Word 2016" application, just like I wanted.
For some reason though, it can't find 85% of my other applications. Here's an example of me trying to load up Excel:
As you can see, Cortana is just not finding the desktop application. It is in my start menu though (just like Word 2016 is):
So I am trying to figure out why some applications Cortana finds and other's it does not. Cortana used to find all my applications 100% of the time until about a month ago or so. I did try reindexing, per a Google search I found, but it did not help. Any help on this would be appreciated.
