I've used Office 2013. Last week I upgraded to Office 2016 and reactivated that.</p> <p>I usually start my programs by hitting the Windows key and searching for programs. However if I search for Word or Excel from the start menu it's showing the 2013 edition of the apps that aren't installed anymore. It's not doing anything either when I click on it. </p> <p>Office 2016 apps are showing up in the all apps section of the start menu, but not on searching for it.</p> <p>I've rebuild my search indexes. I've searched (with Search Everything) for filesnames that resemble word or excel 2013, I'm finding nothing.</p> <p>How to get rid of those references?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=questions/1156436/windows-10-search-shows-office-2013-apps-after-upgrade-to-2016/1156453#1156453 -1 Answer by Run5k for Windows 10 search shows office 2013 apps after upgrade to 2016 Run5k http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/650163 2016-12-14T13:46:14Z 2016-12-14T13:46:14Z <p>Have you tried rebuilding your icon cache?</p> <ol> <li>Right-click on the <code>Start</code> button and choose <strong>Command Prompt</strong> and input the following:</li> <li>Type <strong>ie4uinit.exe -show</strong> and press <kbd>Enter</kbd></li> <li>Type <strong>taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F</strong> and press <kbd>Enter</kbd></li> <li>Type <strong>DEL /A /Q "%localappdata%\IconCache.db"</strong> and press <kbd>Enter</kbd></li> <li>Type <strong>DEL /A /F /Q "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\iconcache*"</strong> and press <kbd>Enter</kbd></li> <li>Finally, type <strong>shutdown /r /f /t 00</strong> and press <kbd>Enter</kbd> to restart your computer</li> </ol> <p>(Source: <a href="https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-icon-cache-rebuild-windows-10-a.html" rel="nofollow noreferrer">How to Rebuild the Icon Cache in Windows 10</a>)</p>
