    I have lost the search facility win 10


    I have lost the search facility on the bottom left taskbar!
    I had this on another computer but never found a cure. Because of this I then used the present PC and all was well. IN the last few days, I have now lost search on this PC.
    I have run sfc /scannow + used the trouble-shooter to run the search and indexing repair program.
    Trouble shooter says 'search not working' then runs a repair and indicates a repair has been carried out successfully.(Fixed)
    However this is not the case - As soon as I go to search, the windows disappears almost immediately.

    I cannot show my full details because Winver will not run - however I am using Win 10 Pro (2004) with all the latest updates etc.

    Your help welcomed, thanks in advance.

    Lost facility on Documents screen

    Hi

    Change the settings in folder options to show the quick access menu. I assume this is what you mean?
    Post back if not


    • Open the File Explorer.
    • Tap on View and click on Options.
    • Change the option Open File Explorer to: from "This PC" to "Quick Access"

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
