    How to get rid of used Search which blocks my Menu!!


    anyone seen this? from the "spyglass" search-from-taskbar I thought I'd find and pullup onedrive since it is hidden somewhere - nasty surprise... The massive rectangular search popup then obliterates my normal view of the contents of the Start Button . there is no convenient "X" to opt-out of it. Everytime I hit the search button now that same search pops up and obliterates the menu.

    clues??*cry

    :)

    If you right click the taskbar, and select search, you have the option to disable the rectangle, which clears it

    not what I'm referring to. when I enter a search term by whatever means, a tall rectangular box opens upon hitting the Start button, showing the results of whatever the search is doing, but nothing in there clears that box out of the way, so it stands right on top of and slightly right of the Start Menu, obliterating everything. I finally powered off to get rid of it. thankfully gone after full start. There's no close button anywhere, ESC doesn't work, nada. it has no appearance on the taskbar so can't right-click/close

    nice
    this is not on the desktop. Its a popup when the start button is hit, either right-click or left-click.

    Just click on an empty space of your screen.

    I'm not sure, but SFC wasn't very useful in the last build - maybe it actually does something in 9926.

    OPTION ONE in DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8 might do more good, but it always seems to report a repair!

    C'est la vie !

    The issue cognus might be experiencing is a Cortana hang.
    Try clicking on the hamburger menu in the upper left, pick settings and turn Cortana off.

    If you don't have an Internet connection - Cortana hangs - does nothing (I can still dismiss it though)
    Dismiss the search box by clicking on an open area of your screen (already mentioned)

    Cortana isn't happy if you don't have speakers, microphone, or Internet access - she pouts.

    If you're seeing a flyout (doubtful that it would cover your Start menu, but possible) try hitting esc
