  1. Weird icon in Windows 10 search bar

When I click it, it does nothing except seemingly try to open a window then stop. What is this and as it looks awful, how do I get rid of it?As you can see, it gives my computer the look of a child's karaoke machine. At one point when I hovered over it, it seemed to show some apps and the icon changed to something else. I've tried Google and Bing to find out what it is and why it looks like that.

  3. Weird Search Bar Bug

    So basically when I opened up my windows, I was opening discord in the search bar when I was greeted with this

    So I searched it up and there were only 3 results and none of them worked. I tried deleting and reloading the icon cache it didn't work, I restarted, I shut down and turn on, none of them worked. Anyone know how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Weird Search Bar Bug

    I ran across a post that recommends Hitting "CTRL+R" when in Discord to reset and refresh the GUI. Give it a try.
