  1. Can't type in Windows Search bar


    Hello,

    I just realized when I run ctfmon.exe as administrator then it works, If I don't click on ctfmon.exe as administrator then it doesn't work. Else each restart of computer I had to run ctfmon.exe as administrator. Why doesn't it start by it self? Sorry, my English not that good but my language is not supported here.

    :)

    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.
