  1. Cortana Search not working


    Hi,


    I have two issues with Cortana Search.

    In 1 PC the user is able to search the apps using cortana search but as soon as he clicks the apps, the apps closes i.e. if he opens CALC then CALC opens and closes immediately. This is happening for all the microsoft apps. But able to open other apps.


    In other PC the user is not able to search in cortana i.e. as soon as he types anything in cortana, nothing happens, blank, cortana goes on searching. His cortana has default message "Go ahead and tell me to do something. Interest aren't available at the moment."

    I think due to this reason the user is not able to search anything.


    Kindly do help us with above 2 issues.



    Regards,


    Manish Chawda

    :)

    Cortana search filter list


    I have a lot of space for display content in Cortana search list, and 80% of it not used because Cortana sorting items by types.
    How disable all filters and make visible all suggested content?

    Cortana search not working AT ALL

    Cortana has not worked since I took the laptop out of the box. There were no changes made to the PC. I will try creating a new admin account as suggested by the link above and will let you know if that still does not work. I have tried all of the other
    steps listed in that article.

    Cortana Search not working

    Cortana and Search Box no longer working after windows refresh

    Hi Nachappa,

    Thanks for your quick response. To answer your questions:

    • Per your suggestion, I tried Safe Mode. The problems still existed in Safe Mode. As a side note - I realized in the process that my power button has disappeared from the sign in screen, so I had to activate Safe Mode from Settings. Not sure if that is
      related to the Cortana issue or not.
    • I ran sfc/scannow. It came back that there were some corrupted files, but they could not be fixed. I restarted the computer, and the search bar/Cortana still wouldn't work.
    • I ran all three Dism prompts and they all came back as having successfully completed. I restarted the computer, and the search bar/Cortana still wouldn't work.
    What would you suggest as a next step?

    Thanks,

    Maria
