  1. Search Bar / Start does not respond to keyboard, Windows 10 Pro, 20H2


    I see a lot of posts with the same issue. I've tried a handful of suggestions but the problem still exists.

    Can I assume this will be addressed in a future Update? My keyboard works just fine every where else, it's just the Search Bar along with the Windows icon in the lower left corner.

    If this post needs to be placed elsewhere, please do so,

    I'm open to suggestions. Thanks, Dave Horne

    :)

  2. Keyboard input lag (Logitech K270 wireless keyboard, Windows 10 20H2)

    Hi there. I've got yet another Windows 10 problem. lol

    This time it's my keyboard. I'm using a Logitech K270 wireless keyboard, on Windows 10 Pro 20H2. I have been experiencing keyboard input lag off and on for a couple months now, and I've searched for possible solutions, but none so far have worked. I was hoping you guys could suggest some fixes.

    Here's what I've tried, based on the suggestions I've found on the web:
    • Updating the keyboard/dongle's drivers (there are no drivers on Logitechs's site, oddly) and firmware. Nope.
    • Swapping USB ports. Nada.
    • Unplugging any extraneous USB devices. Zilch.
    • Checking the batteries. No joy.

    As I was typing this it was lagging here and there. It's a bit disconcerting. Anyway... I don't think I missed anything, but if you need more information or diagnostics, lemme know and I'll upload 'em.

  3. Unable to access Start menu, Search bar, notification buttons on Task bar after install the Update KB3139907 on Windows 10

    Hi John,

    Thank you for responding.

    We are glad to know that you are able to access Search bar and notification center after performing the above troubleshooting steps.

    For the issues with Start menu, try the below steps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the below PowerShell command to re-register Start menu and check if it helps.

    Follow:


    • Right click on the Taskbar and select
      Task Manager
      from the context menu.

    • In the Task Manager window, click on
      File
      and on Run new task.

    • Type powershell, place a check mark on
      Create this task with administrative privileges
      and click Ok.

    • In the administrative Windows PowerShell window, carefully type the below command and hit Enter key from the keyboard.

    • Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
    5. Once the command execution is completed successfully, close the PowerShell window and reboot/ restart the computer.

    NOTE: When you are running the PowerShell command, I recommend you to close all the apps on your system and try.

    If the issue still persists,

    Step 2: I suggest you to try the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the below Microsoft article and check if it helps.

    Search Bar / Start does not respond to keyboard, Windows 10 Pro, 20H2

    Search bar not responding to typed input after 6/12/18 Windows Update

    I did the 06/12/18 Windows Update (Windows 10 Home 64 bit), and now the search bar doesn't respond to any typed input. I type in the first few letters, and the search/Cortana window just closes on me and the Search bar is blank. Cannot open apps or do any searching via the bar.

    Any suggestions, please?
