    Windows 10 May update search bar not searching the web.


    Hi,

    The search bar used to search local content (files, documents, folders, etc.) AND search the internet.

    After the update I'm limited to search local content only. I tried to verify if there is an option under settings --> search to turn this feature on and off unsuccessfully.

    Cortana is limited to voice search only.

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you.

    :)

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
