    Cursor keeps blinking in the address bar search menu after opening explorer or settings for...


    This only happens after I boot up, goes away if I search something and go back or open explorer/settings again. Also goes away If I tab out to start & open services.msc and tab back to that window.
    Doesn't go away if I open or do any other thing. And apparently, I can't select anything while the cursor is blinking in the address bar, for example opening a folder or select a setting.
    Please Help. Thank You.

    :)

    Cursor stops blinking


    Hello,

    By the way it seems that there is a rate of blink about applications, you can check some of them over here :

    Notepad Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.
    Windows Explorer Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.
    Total Commander Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.
    Microsoft Office 2016 Cursor stops blinking after 30-32 blinks.
    Microsoft Edge, inside Google search box Cursor stops blinking after 10-11 blinks.
    Microsoft Edge, inside URL bar Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.
    Firefox (in URL bar, also inside web pages) The cursor did not stop after 50 blinks. Seems to work OK.

    Just tried on my new computer (Windows 10) and it's the same of Worpad, maybe it's just normal *Smile

    Cannot type in Edge address bar or search box

    I have tried several different adjustments, but I cannot type anything into the Edge address bar or search box. I get the blinking cursor, but it will not accept anything. Any suggestions on how to use this beast?

    setting default view for Winodws Explorer Search Reasults

    Thank you for the detailed response. To change the search result's view from content to list, we suggest following the steps below:

    • Open the File Explorer and try to search for files.
    • In the toolbar, open the View tab and click List
      to change the view.
    • Once changed, close the File Explorer.
    • Open the File Explorer again and try to search to see if the setting has been retained.

    After performing the steps above, reply back to us so we can provide additional help.
