    File explorer search box history dispears after click Quick access

    Windows 10 version 20h2

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open file explorer

    2. type something in search box

    3. clear search box

    4. click search box again, you will see a drop down list showing recent search history

    5. click the Quick access which is located at the top of file explorer Navigation pane

    6. click search box again, it does not show the history list anymore

    I have to close file explorer and open it again to get the search history back.

    Search box version # 20H2 Windows 10

    Windows 10 Search box

    Which instructions are you suggesting I missed? There is no search icon. Right clicking the taskbar shows no search option. The "small characters" or icons trick did nothing. The regedit thing:
    Follow these steps to turn on the hidden search box:

    • Open regedit
    • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
    • Inside the search key, create the new DWORD value named EnableSearchBox and set it to 1
    • Restart your computer or simply Explorer Shell
    Did not give me a search option that I can find.

    So in at least MY version of windows 10 there is no search box I can find that will allow me to search my own computer to find possible misplaced files.

    So what are the instructions?
