  1. Issue with Search Bar in File Explorer.


    So I've recently built my new pc, and I noticed that I was getting some issues with the search bar, whenever I typed something in and pressed the Enter Key; it'd show what I searched, however the search bar would turn grey and after that, it wouldn't let me type in it. It doesn't do it to any other search bar on my computer, just the file explorer one. At first, I figured it was to do with me not activating windows; but after using a Key to activate it, it still happens.

  2. File explorer

    Hi Mick,

    I am sorry to know that the File Explorer is not working on the Taskbar.

    I suggest you to right-click on it to unpin it from the task bar.

    Then search for File Explorer in Search. Then right-click on it to Pin it to Taskbar.

    If the issue persists, try the steps below.


    • Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator.

    • Type the following 4 commands at the Command prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    powershell

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    • Close the CMD window.

    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
