    I can't type into Windows 10 search bar or type within start menu


    So randomly, I can no longer type into the windows 10 search and when I bring up the start menu I cannot type in it to search for apps. I've search and tried a few things but still no luck. I attempted to do a system restore to a previous point in safe mode, but I run into an error saying system restore did not complete successfully. System restore failed to extract the original copy of the directory from the restore point. 0x800745b. I have used system restore in the past with no problems, so I don't understand why this is happening along with the start menu/search bar issues. Am I looking at have to reset this PC or fresh start?

    :)

    I can't type into Windows 10 search bar or type within start menu

    Windows 10 64bit, can't type in search bar / start menu, tried powershell fix but didn't help

    Hello guys and search for a solution for this problem and its was the simple of things.

    I don´t know why it works but try it and tell if it works for you guys too.

    • Press Win + R (to open Run )
    • copy paste and press enter to run this program. "C:\Windows\system32\ctfmon.exe". it brings back the language bar and for me it allowed me to type in windows search, start menu and WINDOWS 10 apps again
    I think it is due to missing Language bar or some think like that.

    Best regards.
