  2. Microsoft Cortana not using default browser when doing a Bing search

    I tried everything I can think of and every fix I found on the web for both Microsoft Edge menu items not working and Microsoft Cortana not using Google Chrome to display search results. Nothing worked. After Resetting Microsoft Edge, a pop up box displayed
    saying I had a new extension. Nothing I clicked on in the pop-up box worked. I do not know how but I somehow reset Microsoft Cortana. When I did the first search through Microsoft Cortana, a pop up box came up asking me how I wanted to open the results. The
    Only Two Options Were Microsoft Edge and searched the app store. Apparently Microsoft will not let you use anything but Microsoft Edge with Cortana. So right now I am unable to do searches with Cortana. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

  3. Start menu, search box, and edge all stopped working this morning.......are we all just waiting on a fix?

    Hi,

    Windows 10: Start Menu, Cortana, Settings, etc. not responding

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
    • Type CMD
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD 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
    Thank You.

    microsoft edge and search box not working

    You should have at least downloaded and installed Chrome by now.

    Try to reset Windows 10 1st, see if that resolves the issues.

    If you have upgraded to Windows 10 and you`ve confirmed it`s activated, you could also do a clean install. It should take care of all your problems. ( Last resort )

    Backup all your data first, and of course you will have to re install your programs.
