(unrelated rant - nothing to do with exclusions that someone might've explicitly coded in for search results)

I've been logging into my various Win10 VMs to get them to install Tuesday's updates. To quickly get there, I hit the Start menu and type in 'update'. On some machines, I immediately get the shortcut (which is exactly how things should be, if we're expected to search for everything rather than navigating through a complex menu hierarchy). On other systems, it thinks and thinks and thinks about it, and the results list stays blank. At other times--those same systems--it might come back with the correct results.

This sh*t is broken. There's no other way to put it. And honestly this is a rare case where I, as a developer, don't care about the reasons behind that inconsistent behavior. Just fix it, MS.
