  1. Can't type in Search bar when doing a file upload


    I'm working on a new laptop using Windows 10 and cannot type anything into the search bar when trying to upload files. My search bar works fine otherwise. I can search for any documents or photosif I'm not trying to upload. For instance, I need to be able to upload photos to our business website, or even photos to our business Facebook page and it doesn't matter where I try to retrieve photos or documents from on the computer Dropbox, One Drive, This PC etc, I am not able to type anything into the search bar in the upper right hand corner of the upload file. It makes no sense since I can type in the search bar at any other time other than a file upload. Any suggestions?? It's really impeding my being able to work! Thanks!

    :)

    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

    the search bar and see if you can type anything on it.
