  4. No language bar and cannot type in search box?

    Typing in the search bar no longer works (Fall Creator's Update)

    Hi Jennifer,

    A corrupted operating system is one of possible causes why Windows search is not working properly. To isolate your concern, kindly answer the following:

    • When you say "I can't open a simple command prompt", are you not able to access the Command prompt when you press Windows key + X?
    • Have are the specific troubleshooting steps that you have done so far? Have you tried SFC scan and DISM?

    According to some users who have got stuck in Windows search not working after Windows 10 Creators Update or can’t type in Windows 10 search box malfunction, the missing language bar may the culprit, causing the Windows 10 taskbar search problems

    1. Press Win + R to open the Run command.

    2. Copy or type the command "C:\Windows\system32\ctfmon.exe" in the Run box and then click Enter to bring back the language bar.

    Then the language bar should be back and you can type in Windows search, Start menu, Cortana search and use them to find Windows 10 apps as normal as before.

    We are looking forward to your response.
