Searching returns just one result if the same application is present both in the classic windows menu ("programs") and metro menu ("apps").

In my case, I have both desktop SkyDrive and metro SkyDrive. Searching for SkyDrive finds one result and launches the metro app.

It should either show both results or launch the desktop app (since the search is done from desktop).

    You're right. It should show both, even if the names are an exact match. Same thing happens if I have a shortcut to Games Explorer folder called "Games" and the Xbox Live Games Modern app. Only one "Games" item shows in search results. Thanks for reporting the bug.
