I used to type the start menu entries as shortcut to open them. Windows just opened the search and offered me the right item.
This does not work anymore (as it used to)
The problem seems to be only with start menu entries (who are .lnk files), though it does offer me entries from a different user (I checked by opening containing folder)

What I already tried
- rebuild index
- reset search indexer (by setting Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search\ SetupCompletedSuccessfully to 0 and reboot)
- run the troubleshooter (claims insufficient permissions but I manually enforced r/w permissions for that folder so that does not seem to be the real problem)
- I deleted the folder containing the index manually
- I controlled that I have read permissions for the start menu entries that do not show up

Does anybody hava an idea what I could try next?
