    My search is not functioning

    1. Use the shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Esc to open the Task Manager.
    2. If you see only a handful programs listed by it click on the "more details" link.
    3. Locate "Cortana" under background processes.
    4. Right-click on the process and select "end task" from the context menu.
    The Cortana process is reloaded right away by the operating system.

    i strongly suggest u to follow step by step fix with pictures on https://geeksadvice.com/fix-windows-search-not-working/
