  1. Windows 10 Search Bar Opening Bing Instead of Programs


    Hello! For a long time now, to open applications which I commonly use I've used the search bar. It's very quick and easy - but recently it's stopped working. For example, when I want to launch HyperV I'd simply hit the Windows key on my keyboard then type in 'hyperv' and hit enter, quickly - the application opens. Recently, when I type the same search request, I'm getting different search results and for some applications it just opens a bing search in Microsoft Edge, which isn't even my default browser..... I'll attach screenshots below for a couple of examples, but for each of these example

    :)

  2. Bing Bar App for Windows 10

    Hi Shirley,

    We would like to advise you that the Bing Bar app is not compatible yet with Windows 10. Since its creating conflict when installing other device/program on your PC, we recommend uninstalling the Bing Bar app for the meantime by following the steps below:

    • In the Windows Search bar, type Apps & features.
    • Open the Settings app and click the Programs and Features link under the Related settings section.
    • Once you are in the Control Panel window, scroll down and look for the Bing Bar app.
    • Right-click the app and click Uninstall.

    After performing the steps above, kindly advise us with the result.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

  3. Searching with the Bing Search bar

    When I enter a search in the Bing search bar on the screen of my desk top computer, the search comes on the minimized window, but will not open in Maximized view. What caused this and how can it be fixed to open the window on the screen instead of the
    bottom task bar on the computer?

  4. Windows 10 Search Bar Opening Bing Instead of Programs

    Cortana on Windows 10 won't talk. Instead, she just does a Bing search.

    There is some bug, its asks for a name then recognized the correct name from my contacts that are listed in people but does a bing search instead of going to the next step in sending an email.
