    For the last few weeks, I've been having this problem where whenever I try to search for something all the results are squished within the top 1/4th of the search overlay. If I just open the search from the search bar, it opens of squished and then fixes itself after a few seconds. But, if I directly search for something by pressing a key in the start menu, the results are squished and stay that way no matter how long I wait.
