I don't keep many shortcuts on my desktop to keep it clean. I am used to just hitting the windows key and searching for the program I need. But now with the recent installation of my ssd, it only searches programs on my ssd (they are all on my hdd) is there any way to have windows search the hdd or both?

Also is there anything I need to do to setup my ssd any better? I did most of the basic stuff. I also set it so that the downloads and desktop folder for my ssd and hdd are both the same location.

You might want to give the program launchy a shot.

With your ssd, you should set windows temp folders to your hard disk as well.

I believe I did send my temp files there. I am not quite sure.

There is also a program called SSD tweaker if you don't want to go through all the tedious tweaks like disabling superfetch yourself
