    Full name required to find app in search

    Search Apps wont find wireshark unless I type out wireshark in full. It's a desktop program if you are unfamiliar. Was wondering if anyone has happened upon a fix for this type of issue?

    does it happen with other programs? I haven't seen this behavior. If I type win, winamp will certainly be among the choices. if I type tag, tagscanner will be there too.

    and when you mean search apps, are you referring to the search feature on the charms bar?
