    Issues with Windows start menu SEARCH rzPLdtYPSkcnB7lzpSbaedxpxbjTwkPuDaupmuIQrxk.jpg

    Previously, when I would search using the Windows start menu search I would get the result highlighted for me and I could just press enter.

    Press WIN key > type app name > press enter

    Now, if I follow the same process above, it doesn't highlight, it shows all results and I have to navigate with the arrow keys to get to my result THEN press enter.

    Press WIN key > type app name > down arrow key a couple of times > press enter

    I know it sounds minor, but it's slowing me down like crazy. Does anybody know where or how I could revert it back to the way it was?

    Hi Chris,

    There are still 3 remaining troubleshooting steps you can use to resolve this issue. Follow any of the methods below:

    • Rebuild the search index in Windows 10.
      • Type Indexing Options.
      • Click Advanced.
      • Click Rebuild, then OK.
      • Wait until the process is complete.
    • Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana.
    • If the two troubleshooting steps still didn't resolve your issue, we recommend that you use
      System Restore to a certain point that
      Search and Start menu is still properly working.
    If all else fails, you might need to do a clean install of Windows 10.
