  1. Search bar not working after Windows 11 22H2 update


    After updating to version 22H2, the start menu search bar began to not work anymore. Clicking the search button on the taskbar, typing in the start menu or win+s don't do anything; however, explorer search works fine.The only fix I found is restarting the pc, but shutting it down and turning it on again make the issue reappear.Turning on or off fast start-up doesn't work, and neither does restarting windows search service or SearchHost.exe.I also did an sfc /scannow just in case, but no issues were found.I also noticed a couple of things when the search bar doesn't work:- Windows takes ~10 sec

    :)
