Windows 10 search does not find .exe files. To reproduce:
1) Download an .exe file and save it to the desktop.
In my case i have downloaded "pushVNC7-0.1.1.exe" and saved it on my desktop.
2) Press the magnifying glass to the right of the Start button, enter "pushVNC" in the search box.
3) No results show up.
It does find other folders that i have placed on the desktop. For example i have a folder called "Baretail". Search finds the folder, but it does not find the "baretail.exe" file stored within the "Baretail" folder.
I have tried reindexing 3 times. This does not help.
I have made sure that "exe" is checked in Control Panel -> Indexing options -> Advanced -> Filetypes.
I have also tried adding a new extension "exe" and ".exe".
Nothing of the 3 tried have helped.
Is this a bug i've hit? or is there a possibility to make .exe files include in the search results?
ps. No matter which .exe file i try to search for i get no results.
