    keyboard isn't working for microsoft games/microsoft apps and cortana search bar


    for a while I've been having this problem where I can't type in the cortana search bar, which wasn't a big deal at first I just ignored it and found other ways to search, but this got really annoying when I couldn't sign into my microsoft account because I couldn't type in my password, I found a way to bypass that and finally installed the game but even IN-GAME I couldn't move or do anything with my keyboard. The only thing that works was my mouse.


    I've spent hours trying to find a solution and nothing has worked, I'm running out of options now


    I've tried running ctfmon.exe and using task scheduler to run ctfmon.exe

    Unistalled and re-installed my keyboard driver


    entered these commands in powershell/cmd and nothing worked

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest

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



    Moved from: Windows 10 / Performance & system failures

  2. Search Bar/Cortana

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

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

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.

    Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.
