    Start. Search. Cortana not working


    Windows 10 and I think it's version 1903.

    Nothing happens when I click on any of the three buttons listed. I can't get to my Start menu, seach or even Cortana, if I used it.

    I found a link online that said to run that sfc /scannow. I did that and no problems were found.

    Can someone tell me how to get these three buttons on my taskbar active again?

    Thank you.

    :)

    Cortana search filter list


    I have a lot of space for display content in Cortana search list, and 80% of it not used because Cortana sorting items by types.
    How disable all filters and make visible all suggested content?

    Hi,

    Just to ensure that the settings are configured correctly, please try the steps below.

    This issue may occur if location settings are not turned on for Cortana.

    To turn on location settings for Cortana, I suggest you to try these steps and check if it helps.




    • Click on Start Button and type Location in the search.

    • Open Location Privacy Settings.

    • Under the option "choose apps that can use your location" check if Cortana is turned on.

    • If not turn on and check if it helps.


    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    Start. Search. Cortana not working

    Cortana search not working AT ALL

    Cortana has not worked since I took the laptop out of the box. There were no changes made to the PC. I will try creating a new admin account as suggested by the link above and will let you know if that still does not work. I have tried all of the other
    steps listed in that article.
