    Search in Windows 10 Taskbar Stopped Working


    Hi,

    Win10 version 1607 OS Build 14393.1358

    The search area on the task bar - it's the magnifying glass icon. Usually it works OK, like if I need to find CCleaner I just type "cc" and it'll confirm it's installed or not. Or I type "update" and it'll find java update, MS update... - all the apps associated with updates.

    But it suddenly stopped working. It finds nothing. I don't want Cortana. But I do want a that good time-saving search and now it's gone.

    I'd be grateful for any help.

    :)

  2. My Start button does not work - only with a right click, as well as the Search the web and Windows

    After upgrading to Windows 10, my start button stopped working, I cannot use the Search the web and Windows taskbar search and I have no live Windows. These features existed after the upgrade but are not working or available to me since last week.

    Search in Windows 10 Taskbar Stopped Working

    Hi, do these elementary ideas help?

    Note the second mentions rebuilding the search index; try opening file explorer in a folder or disk which is specified to be indexed, and see if you get 'instant' results.

    (Search Index: e.g. Windows key + X, Control Panel, Indexing Options).

    Have a look at your Update History- was an update installed at the time this stopped working, perhaps?
