    I can't use my search feature nor my Start button

    Hello, for some time now, I haven't been able to use my search feature on windows 8 (not 8.1). Now that I have windows 10, the problem persists. I have tried several other resolved questions on the forums, but to no avail.

    The last one I tried was via the powershell by typing in Powershell:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.Ins

    tallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Windows PowerShell

    Copyright (C) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.Ins

    tallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Add-AppxPackage : Cannot find path 'C:\AppXManifest.xml' because it does not exist.

    Any idea how I can resolve this?
