    How to fix Windows Search (Cortana)?


    How do I fix Windows Search (Cortana)? I have Cortana disabled in Group Policy. I had the experience with the CPU spike with the installation of KB4512941. I uninstalled the update in the recent past and yesterday I tried installing the latest updates by resuming the updates for Windows Updater. KB4515384 was installed and the Start Menu would not open and showed a window about critical error and start menu not working. I uninstalled the update and tried installing KB4512941 again and the start menu still did not work. I tried installing the latest updates again and still no start menu access. I tried various installs and uninstalls of the latest updates and no start menu access. Finally, I tried an in-place repair of Windows 10 using an .ISO file and the start menu is working again. However, the search does not work when I click the Search icon. The icon does nothing. Also, the Cortana process is not running according to the Task Manager process screen. Any suggestions or should I wait for Microsoft to fix the issue?


    FYI: I did send feedback to Microsoft on this problem using the Feedback hub.

    :)

    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 will not search

    Hi Richard,

    Please answer these question to assist you better.

    • Which is the latest build installed in your computer?
    • Is the issue specific to Internet Explorer?
    • Do you get any error message?

    Follow the Methods below and check if Cortana search works as it should. Thank you.

    Method 1: Run the Search and Indexing Troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with search and indexing of files and folders. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check the status of the issue. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Control panel.


    • Change the view by option on the top right to
      Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Search and Indexing troubleshooter.

    • Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.


    If the issue still persists follow next Method.
