We found that we could not change these entries on the General Configuration page, but could do so via the Edit Config page.
I'd love to know if using only step 8 fixes the issue. I tried a few other things too, but this was the final method that worked. As a side note, I use a domain-joined account, but I doubt that makes a difference because I'd deleted the local Admin account I'd created during initial setup, and created a brand new local account during troubleshooting.
Hopefully none of the other tweaks were part of the final solution. I then signed in with the new local account I'd just made, and the search function was still not working correctly.
A lot of NVIDIA graphics card users have made reports on the Control Panel not opening.
This issue has spanned across several Windows versions from Windows 7 to 10.
I copied this folder and pasted it at the following location on my domain account: After this I restarted, and my search was fixed! Less ugly workaround: Put up with it until Microsoft issues a fix. I had broken this because I mucked about in the cortana and indexing settings to try and make my computer run a bit quicker.
Looks like there is probably a multiple cause issue with same effect going on. Perhaps others have a different issue with the same effect where indexing permissions get messed up. Fortunately, there are dozen's of reports of this in the Windows feedback app, which increases the odds of a fix. Reindexing, modifying registry keys, exporting a working search registry key and reimporting, reinstalling cortana, rebuilding index, erasing all index entries... So I tried a shotgun approach and did everything - and it worked. 4-Turn off indexing for all file content in your main hard drive.
This is OK after a fashion (the old URL is aliased to the new one), but is causing EE to throw CORS errors for some plug-ins (in particular Assets).
Anyone know how I can coerce EE into recognising the new URL to the Control Panel index page?
As noted by ghacks, there are in fact two ways to go about restoring this helpful shortcut -- the easy way and the not-quite-so-easy way.
