  1. Wifi and search bar not working on Windows 10


    I installed windows 10 today, upgraded from Windows 7.

    Basically my wifi drops every other minute, to fix this I used the web diagnostic tool, which says the default gateway is not available. Eventually I get disconnected after a minute or two, then I have to try using the tool again to reconnect.

    My search bar (and the window key shortcuts as well) won't work either after attempting to change the language to english to follow some guide on how to resolve the first issue.

    I'd be very glad if anyone was able to help with either or both of these issues.

    Other info: My router is perfectly connected and I can use my other laptop perfectly fine with it

    I already tried using all the cmd commands related to this issue I could find on the internet

    I am connected only through a wifi usb key which worked perfectly fine before installing windows 10 and has its drivers installed and updated.

    Already tried restarting the router and the desktop.

    Google Chrome's error when navigating is DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET

    I also get "unable to automatically detect this network's proxy settings" at times on the diagnostic tool



    If there's any info needed let me know!

  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.
