  1. Cannot type in Windows Store, Search, or Settings


    I was trying to resolve issues with my computer running slow and disabled a few things using this guide.
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/windows101tricks.com/windows-10-high-cpu-usage/amp/
    It worked in speeding things up but it seems it may have broken something in the process and is now preventing me from updating windows store apps, typing in windows store, typing in the start menu search bar, and typing in windows settings.

    :)

      Enter.
    • Click on Apps.
    • On the Search this list box, type in Store.
    • Click on Store then click on Advance options.

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
