Since I upgrade to Windows 10, Cortana has been iffy when it comes to finding applications. For some reason, when I type in Word, it doesn't show me Microsoft Word. Why is that? Can someone help me? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Here is the relevant part:

 reinstalled Cortana using the following procedure:

  1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window (press win + X, and then press A)
  2. Type start powershell and press enter
  3. Run the command (in one line):

Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
