    Huge menu above search box


    Hi I have just upgraded Win10 to Version 1909 Build 18363.418 and have suddenly got this huge menu which pops up when I select the search box. It coveres nearly half of the screen. I have no idea what it is called. I seems some users got something similar with the last upgrade but not all and I couldn't find anyting sayinh ow to get rid of or edit it

    How do I get rid of it please?

    I can't see what I am doing, and it duplicates the start menu which is pointless.

    I also have another settings icon there. that makes 3, there are now 2 on the start+1 on this new menu. Can't see the point of that personally.

    :)

    Cortana search box is now huge

    I have the same problem. The problem is not the search box but the search area in start menu. I recently had to create myself a new user with all new settings and well it came with this. Funny enough, same day I install Win10 to my laptop and it does not have this problem...

    In addition if I open the start menu and type name of a program, it shows me some options on the right side and even recently opened files by that program etc. I want it gone. But how? How can I shrink it back?

    I already have BingSearchEnabled set to 0 so I don't see web suggestions and what not.

    Cortana search box is now huge

    I have noticed that whilst my search box is OK the actual size of Cortana black box is twice the size... mine used to be the same as the search box as shown by the arrow, now twice the size.. seems to have happened last night... was this part of the latest update?
