    I watched a youtube video about how to fix the search bar and the guy who posted it pinned a comment yesterday saying that there's a worldwide issue with the search bar right now. Is anyone else having these problems.

  2. File Explorer Search Not Working


    I am trying to search in File Explorer (Windows Explorer, My Computer) and it will not find anything. I can copy text from a name in the list and paste it in the search box and it still finds nothing. I have looked at the suggestions that have been posted and nothing I find that is relative to this works. Anyone have any suggestions? I am running Win 10 Pro on an I3 coustom desktop computer.

  3. File Explorer never stops searching.


    Greetings all,

    Since upgrading to Windows 10, my file explorer never stops searching. All my files are displayed but the green search bar just keeps scrolling across the top. Anyone else having this issue?

    How to clear the search record at the search bar on Windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I apologize for the inconvenience happened. We are glad to help you.

    Please share this:


    • Which search bar are you referring to?

    • Is it the search bar in file explorer or the search bar on desktop (cortana and search)?
    If you are referring to the search bar in file explorer, I suggest you to follow the steps given below and check if it helps:
    (to delete a specific entry)


    • Open File Explorer.

    • Click/tap inside the Search box, then select (highlight) the search suggestion (ex:
      ttt) that you want to delete, and press the Delete key.

    • You will not notice that it has been deleted.

    • Repeat if you would like to delete another one.

    To clear all search entries, follow this:


    • Click/tap on the Download button below to download the .bat file below, then
      run it.

      Clear_Search_History_in_File_Explorer.bat

    2. If prompted, click/tap on Run.

    NOTE: If you like, you can stop getting the Run prompt by
    unblocking

    the downloaded .bat file
    .

    3. You will now notice a command prompt quickly open and close while applying the changes to your registry.

    Hope this information helps. Feel free to get back to us for further queries. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thanks and regards,

    Jenith
