    Search bar not responding to typed input after 6/12/18 Windows Update

    I did the 06/12/18 Windows Update (Windows 10 Home 64 bit), and now the search bar doesn't respond to any typed input. I type in the first few letters, and the search/Cortana window just closes on me and the Search bar is blank. Cannot open apps or do any searching via the bar.

    Any suggestions, please?

  3. My stuff is not responding in the search bar after indexing

    Hi Sertan,

    We appreciate you for being a part of Windows 10.

    1) Have you made any changes to the computer except indexing prior to the issue?

    2) Since when the My stuff button is not responding in the search bar?

    3) Have you installed the latest Windows updates?

    You can run the Search and indexing troubleshooter
    in Windows 10 and check if it helps. It will find and fix problems with the Windows search. Follow the below steps to run Search and indexing
    troubleshooter.


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control Panel

    • Type Troubleshooting in the search bar on the
      Control Panel.

    • Click on View all on the left navigation pane.

    • Click on Search and indexing.

    • Click on Advanced on the
      Search and indexing
      dialog box and click on Run as administrator (Enter the credentials if required).

    • Click on Next and follow onscreen instruction complete the
      Search and indexing troubleshooter.
    The Error: 0x800f081f might occur if some of the files needed by Windows Update is damaged or missing. I suggest you to install the latest updates and check if it helps to resolve the error after you run DISM.

    I hope the above information helps to fix the issue when you use settings. Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.
