Last week, I installed a bunch of new programs to my Windows 10 desktop. But when I try to search for it, nothing is coming up! It does find old programs but not the new ones. What can I do?

    How are you searching? Have you tried looking them up in the control panel add/remove programs to see if they are listed?

    Yes, how did you search, either by Cortana/by using start menu. You can try to kill Cortana first through task manager and then again start the search and see if it helps. Or you can try for classic shell start menu (a free utility) to overcome this issue. Also you can run windows 10 built in utility troubleshooter which can help a lot. Click control panel > troubleshooting > view all. On next window click advanced & then click apply repairs automatically.

    I'm not a big fan of the way Win10 search works. I just tend to go to file explorer and do my searches there.. Maybe they will fix it down the road.

    I had the same problem few weeks ago, Cortana needed to be restarted.

    I referred this ARTICLE for solving that issue.

    I hope this article helps you as well.
