    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.

    No search box on taskbar The search button on the taskbar does not work, the type box does not appear. What I can do? :(

    Thanks for the great replies here, however, it turns out that the solution is far simpler. My problem was because I was using small taskbar buttons on the taskbar! If you right-click on the taskbar and select "Use Small Taskbar Buttons" then the search
    box on the taskbar goes away!! If you revert to regular size buttons then the search box appears! I was using small buttons previously, hence no search box!

    Thanks everyone for your help though!
