  1. Cortana Search Bar Crashes When I Open It

    Hello. A couple days ago my search bar stopped working and I've been trying to fix it for hours. When I click the search bar it acts like its going to work, but then crashes immediately. I've also noticed that when I scroll through the applications in the start page it crashes said start page. I've tried so many things that it's getting frustrating. I restarted my PC multiple times, ended the task for the search bar, Cortana, and numerous other things, I've done powerchell, among numerous other things, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas??

    Cortana/search bar not opening

    I'm unsure how to bring up the command prompt without the search. I do not see the CMD option in complete list and of course the search bar is what we're troubleshooting.

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.
