    Windows 10 Search Box on Task Bar Not Working


    The search box to the right of the Windows Button on the task bar stopped working.


    When I click the cursor into it, a blank box briefly pops above the search box like it usually does when it shows various items but quickly then disappears. The cursor then disappears from the search box.


    What might be causing this? I usually use the search box for searching for things.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
