    To assist you better, kindly send us a screenshot and provide more details by answering the following questions:

    • When you say "taskbar search function", do you mean the Start menu search field?
    • Are you getting any error messages upon accessing the taskbar search?
    Meanwhile, to help resolve your concern, we suggest that you run the System file checker and DISM tool to fix issues with corrupted system files that may be causing the issue. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X on your keyboard.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type or copy these commands followed by hitting Enter:

      sfc /scannow

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    Do let us know how it goes.

    Search box on taskbar missing.

    Hi John,

    This issue with search box may happen if it's hidden from the taskbar.

    To resolve the issue, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the taskbar and select Search.
    • Select Show search box.

    Feel free to post back if you have other concerns.
