    Unable to type in Search box


    Hi all,


    I have an office and 3 of my machines are unable to type in the search box, I've come to the conclusion that it is Cortana as on all 3 machines there is no Cortana to be seen. But other machines in the office have Cortana and are able to search


    I have tried reinstalling Cortana using " Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} ".


    aswell as this " Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} ".


    I have also tried copying the existing files from " Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy "


    I'm not really able to re-image either as we have our products Pre-Imaged by DELL and have all the company's software installed that we don't have


    Thanks.


    Jayden.

    :)

  3. Unable to type in to box on 'Control Panel'.

    In this case, we suggest that you follow these steps and check if the issue persists:

    • Press Windows key + R, type control.exe srchadmin.dll, and click on
      OK.
    • Click on the Advanced button.
    • From the Advanced dialogue box, select Rebuild. Selecting
      Rebuild will begin the process of deleting, and then rebuilding your PC’s search index.

    Note: While the steps to initiate the rebuilding process are simple, the actual process can take quite some time depending on how much data Windows has to index.

    Keep us updated on the results.

    Cortana search box - type request

    Since I got a Win 10 update a few days ago, Cortana has been hard to deal with :>). She will take requests verbally but if it try to type something into her search box, as soon as I enter a letter, a white box appears as though some suggestions will be
    listed (as it did before the update) and then all of a sudden it disappears and I am back to the original Cortana window. Any ideas? I did set up other admin user and Cortana will allow that user to type into the box and she will immediately start a list
    of suggestions. Also I tried "method 1 and 2 that required changes to the registry.
