    Why do the search bar & Microsoft-based login window on my laptop not work?


    Anyone here knows why my search bar doens't work? I can't type anything at all on the search bar. The line cursor is there, but it won't proceed what I type.It doesn't only happen on the search bar. This also happens on "find a setting" search bar on the settings. The Microsoft-based login window like when you log in on Microsoft Teams software or Outlook or when you register a new email on an email app also doesn't work. You can't type anything on the email and password bar.[I had tried following all of the methods on this guide]https://www.wintips.org/fix-cannot-type-in-windows-10-search-

  2. Search Bar/Cortana

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.
