Hi forum,

when typing in the Classic Start Menu search field for Programs/Files and trying to find certain Windows 10 settings, the settings are found -- but when I click on a found setting, Classic Start Menu tries to open the setting from drive G:, does not find it there and then an error comes up.

How can this be fixed such that Classic Start Menu looks at the correct paths on drive C: again?

Open Control Panel -> Indexing Options. Make sure the following folder is being indexed. If not add this folder to the index by clicking the Modify button. You may have to expand folders quite a bit under the treeview to get to this folder.

C:\Users\<Your user name>\AppData\Local\Packages\windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Indexed\Settings\en-US

Also, AppData folder might be hidden so once you get to C:\Users\<Your user name>, Appdata may not be listed in the Indexed Locations box. To fix this, close the dialog and close Indexing Options. Then you can unhide the Appdata folder from an elevated command prompt by giving the command:

attrib %userprofile%\appdata -h -r -s

Then open Indexing Options in Control Panel again.

Add the above mentioned folder to your search index.

Once Windows finishes indexing this folder, PC Settings from your C: drive should show up in Classic Start Menu search results.

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
