    lost search function in recent updates.


    I recently noticed that the search function in the taskbar stopped working. The taskbar shows search magnifying glass and "Type here to search", but when I enter any text the popup window is totally black. No search results are displayed. The issue seems to have occurred after a recent system update. System is Windows 10 pro personal use-with administrator privileges, version 1909, build 18363.628. How do I restore the search function from the task bar?

    :)

    The recent change to the search function in explorer?

    I think this is going to be a frequent cause of confusion and questions once more users get updated to version 1909 soon.

    As far as I know, the File Explorer changes are only documented in the Insider Preview release from nearly six months ago:

    But hopefully a better explanation of the changes will be published once 1909 is more generally released.
     
  3. Lost Two Mouse Functions

    I recently did a system restore on my laptop and have, it seems, lost two mouse functions as a result. The two to which I am refering are, the scrolling feature and the zoom feature. I have searched google for a solution, but all rely things which I have no access to. More specifically, most suggest going to "mouse and touchpad settings," and then click on "additional mouse options." However, if you refer to the pictures here, I am missing the following tabs: Wheel, Hardware, and Device Setting.

    PS It seems that i have lost all functions except its "ordinary" mouse capability.

    Search function in Win10

    Hi, thanks for the suggestion, but as I stated in my previous message, I whitnessed this behaviour on various machines. Can you confirm that the search function works fine on your PC when repeating the same steps I described?
