    I cannot enable the SEARCH THE WEB AND WINDOWS function on Windows 10. When I click on it, the hourglass icon flickers on and immediately disappears. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

  2. Search the web and windows not working

    Generally booting into safe mode once and then to normal is a workaround for this.Anyway,

    :Register the start menu and see if that helps.

    Do a system file check with SFC /SCANNOW as mentioned here

    Run System file checker

    Do reply back with the result of that

  3. Search the web and windows not working

    Hi Jerry,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps:

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task.
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”.
    • Type CMD.
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow

      powershell

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Close the CMD window.
    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Also, check for Windows updates.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
