For some odd reason when searching for documents of any kind by title or tag does not work in the start menu search bar.
I can search in explorer, but unless i copy and paste in the file path into the start menu, there will be no search results. Could it be that my documents are in my b drive not c? I have indexed all my files as well.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Is there another user account on that PC? If so log into that one and see if it works in that account, if it does, there is a problem with the user account. If you do not have another user account go to Control Panel/User Accounts and create a new one with admin rights, log out of the current account and log into the new one you just made.

If the New user account works using Start Search, then migrate your old user account profile to the new one.
Delete the old corrupt user account after a few weeks using the new one.
