Is Everything reindexing every time you start it?

Please make sure "Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything" is enabled:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab.
  • Check Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything.
  • Click OK.

thanks--
does not have to re-index but when I click on desktop icon it now goes to license pg, then choose install location, etc, all the way to finish, then works fine.
it did not use to do this.
have been using it for several years with no issues and it just started doing this--could be related to some auto updates from windows, but last time I updated, no issues with Everything. I recently deleted Everything and then downloaded the latest, with no change to problem

when I click on desktop icon
Does the desktop icon happen to point to, Everything-1.4.1.895.x86.en-US-Setup.exe, or similar, rather then pointing to Everything.exe?
