  1. Search Option Not Working


    Hi, my Search in the Taskbar is not working. This happened in my other PC but it started working randomly. When I click on the Search icon, it shows the black Rectangular Box but has nothing in it and closes suddenly. Any fix for this?

    :)

    You may follow the steps provided below and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Perform System File Check (SFC), and then check if this fixes the issue.

    b. Type cmd without quotes in the search box.

    c. On the left pane, right click on the “cmd” option and select “Run as Administrator”.

    d. Type sfc /scannow’ without quotes and hit enter.

    Method 2:

    If issue persist, I suggest you to try running DISM scan by following the below steps:

      • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.

    Step: 2 Click File > Run New Task

    Step: 3 Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”

    Step: 4 Type PowerShell

    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
