Hello!

Sometimes my finger slips and I get the startscreen opened, but I can never figure out how it happened.

What's the hotkey for opening the start-screen when I have CSM running?

Go to the "Special Items" tab.
Check the box for "Show Log Off"


Thanks. Not sure how that got disabled. (If it isn't by default).

I guess this thread can be moved to the CSM section

Hi!

I don't know why, or for how long (because I rarely use it), but it fails to appear. I see nor reason why it shouldn't. The logout option is present in the OS context menu for the start button.

You can't prevent indexing of folders but you can prevent returning them in search results. The search box supports the Windows Advanced Query Syntax. So you can type: <Your search term> —kind:folder(— means exclude items with the kind:folder). I see. Well, it l'll go back to making .lnk-s then.

The 2 program locations contain shortcuts (*.LNK files), not EXEs. If you put any LNK files inside the 2 Programs directories, they will be searched without indexing. Classic Start Menu's path searching feature also works without indexing. You add as many folders as you want containing your EXEs to...

Then your best bet is creating a shortcut to the programs you want searched and paste them inside %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs or a folder inside %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
