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

    This issue might occur if some file types for indexing were disabled after the updates. We suggest that you try rebuilding your search index by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R, type control.exe srchadmin.dll, and click on
      OK.
    • Click on the Advanced button.
    • Click on the File Types tab. From here, you can choose to include certain file types from indexing by checking them in the list.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Unable to type text in any of start (search func)

    • As mentioned in title, I was unable to type in the start (press start > press any key to search)
    • Unable to type wifi password too (but can paste) > essentially the wifi passcode textbox that popups up from taskbar
    • I have tried many well-known antiviruses, malwarebytes etc. but none could solve the issue
    • I have also tried powershell scripts to fix but it doesn't work either:

    Unable to type in Windows 10

    Hi,

    • Did you check if you can type well using Internet Explorer?
    • Do you get any error message when you type in Edge?

    I appreciate you for trying some steps in order to get the issue fixed.

    I would suggest you to clear cookies and saved website data, form data, and passwords
    used to help make your browsing experience easy. Here's how:


    • In Microsoft Edge, go to More
      Unable to type [​IMG]
      > Settings, and under
      Clear browsing data, select Choose what to clear, and then select the check box(es) for the information you want to clear.

    Please revert if you face any issues while typing.

    Thank you.
