    Can't type anything in the Windows 10 search bar


    I have tried to do the workaround fix posted in this community previously involving running pasting "C:\Windows\system32\ctfmon.exe" in the search bar and running it, to get typing in the Windows search bar working again. This is related to the language bar apparently. However, after a Windows 10 update today this is not working either. I have no idea now how to get this working again, can anyone please offer a suggestion, and can Microsoft please, please, please fix this issue. It is sooooo annoying. Regards, Glenn

    :)

    Can't type in Search bars or login bar in browser.

    Hi,

    This can be caused by corrupted system files. To help resolve the issue, we suggest following the steps provided by Abdul_Malik in this
    thread that was found helpful in resolving the same issue. After doing so, try using
    the search bar and see if you can type anything on it.

    Get back to us if you need further assistance.

    Can't type anything in the Windows 10 search bar

    Search bar stuck while trying to type in the search bar

    Hello DhananjayaSwain,

    We would like to know more information regarding your concern so that we will know why the search bar is not working. Have you recently made any changes/updates prior to this issue?

    Did you run the troubleshooter to rebuild the indexing? If not, I would suggest that you run the troubleshooter to fix common indexing issue. You can run the troubleshooter by performing these steps:

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard and type
      Troubleshoot.
    • Choose Troubleshoot in the results.
    • Under Find and fix other problems highlight
      Search and Indexing then click Run the troubleshooter.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
