When I upgraded to Win10 64 bit from Win7 64 bit, I noticed my search functions were not working correctly. Below are three links to articles I found to improve search functions for Win10. Credit goes to all of the people who wrote these articles. 

 

If the search function in the "Settings Windows Store App" is not working follow the below tutorial.

To adjust your search function indexing, to broaden you search locally, follow the tutorial below. Be care b/c your index folder can get out of control really fast.

To disable "Web Search" in Win10 (because it is terrible!) follow the tutorial below.
