  1. Start Menu search does not work


    Hello,


    After one of more recent Windows 10 updates my Start Menu search has stopped working. When I search for anything it does not display any results. The rest of Start Menu seems to be working fine - although it's very hard to find things manually. How can I fix this? My OS Build is 18262.356.

  3. Start Menu Search not working


    When I start my computer, my Start Menu Search sometimes gets stuck in a start up or searching loop.
    The start menu itself works if I am just using my mouse to click icons. The issue is hitting the Windows button on my keyboard and typing.

    What is strange is that when this happens, if I log out then log in again, it starts up fine. While this is a workaround, I would like to solve the problem that is causing the problem.

    I've tried re-indexing my entire computer based on a similar post I found here, but that did not work. Also - searching in a general Explorer window works fine showing the Windows Indexing does not appear to be the problem.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
