Welcome, my name is Lucas, as we always share everything we know of value to our public and this will not be the one that was missing, stay until the end of the blog post to be with the latest news that we have prepared for you. As we told you last week, we read all the comments and create new content for you, so if you have not done so yet, leave us your email and we will keep you informed. Without wasting any more time I hope you read all the content and see you in the next cool articles on clomatica.
This morning I rebooted my Windows 10 PC to finish installing a pending update. After restarting the Windows 10 PC, I tried to open the Internet Explorer browser using the search in the Start menu, but the search did not show Internet Explorer in the results.
At first, I thought that the Start menu search was not working as it should and tried to navigate to the Windows Accessories folder of the Start menu (under All Applications), hoping to be able to launch Internet Explorer from there. To my surprise, the shortcut to Internet Explorer was also missing from the Windows Accessories folder, which is why Start Menu Search was unable to find the Internet Explorer program.
If you are also unable to start the Internet Explorer program in Windows 10 by searching, you can try the instructions below to start the Internet Explorer program.
IMPORTANT: If Internet Explorer does not appear on the Start menu, you can try other methods to start Internet Explorer. See our 6 ways to open Internet Explorer in Windows 10 Help for instructions.
Method 1 of 2
Fixed Internet Explorer missing in Windows 10
Step 1: Open the Start menu, click All Apps (if you can’t see All Apps, see our All Missing Apps guide in the Windows 10 guide), then go to the Windows Accessories folder.
Note that in Windows 10 Anniversary Update builds, there is no All Apps button on the Start menu. You must scroll to see the Windows Accessories folder.
Step 2: Click on Windows Accessories file. The Internet Explorer icon should appear here. If the Internet Explorer link appears, you can fix the problem (Internet Explorer does not appear in the search results) by rebuilding the search box. To rebuild, see our steps to rebuild the search index in Windows 10 help for detailed instructions.
And if the Internet Explorer shortcut does not appear in the Windows Accessories folder, follow the instructions in the steps mentioned below.
Step 3: Go to the following folder:
C: Program Files (x86) Internet Explorer (on Windows 10 64-bit / x64)
C: Internet Explorer Program Files (on Windows 10 32-bit / x86)
In the path above, “C” is the letter of the drive where Windows 10 is installed.
Step 4: After entering the Internet Explorer folder, the right button of the mouse in iexplore (.exe), click Send toand then click Desktop (create shortcut) option to create iexplore shortcut on desktop.
You can now click the iexplore shortcut on the desktop to launch the Internet Explorer browser. To add it back to the Windows Accessories folder and make it available in search results, you must complete the following three steps.
Step 5: Copy the newly created iexplore shortcut from the desktop, open the Run command box by pressing the Windows logo and the R keys at the same time, paste the following path, and then press the Enter key to open the Windows Accessories folder. When the confirmation dialog appears, click the Continue button.

Step 6: Finally, paste the iexplore link. Rename the link from iexplore to Internet Explorer.
The shortcut to Internet Explorer should now appear in the Windows Accessories folder on the Start menu.
Step 7: The search will not immediately show Internet Explorer in the results, as the new link we just added to the Windows Accessories folder is not yet indexed. Manually rebuild the search index by following the instructions on how to rebuild the search index in Windows 10 or wait a couple of hours for Windows 10 to automatically index the link and display the same in the search results.
