    Search Boxes


    Hello, no text appears in any of the windows search boxes including Edge, windows store app, the search box on the taskbar or within any open windows when my documents are open etc


    Text appears when I type commands when using Win+R.


    I have searched for fixes and tried all the common ones ctfmon and copying and pasting the commands in powershell etc but none of them work.


    Thanks in advance

    Stu.

    :)
