    Windows 10 Search never works, Tried restarting cortana


    Hey all,

    Ever since i upgraded its been a regret of mine.

    I cant search anything by hitting "windows key" then typing anything.

    The only thing it will find is -
    dxdiag
    cmd
    msconfig

    It wont even find paint, or notepad, or wordpad, calculator. Not to mention literally NONE of any of my installed
    applications, Its so frustrating.

    Being used to Win7 search, Tap windows key, The second you press any key its showing results, Searches everything perfectly.

    I've read around and heaps of people have this issue.

    I tried restarting Cortana.
    Tried sorting the indexing out
    Tried deleting a registry key [ cant remember which one - followed a guide ]
    Also tried powershell and fetching "Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}"

    Now im confused.

    My windows is up to date. But still. Search is completely useless....


    Please tell me theres an easy fix that i've missed? *Sad


    All help kindly appreciated!





    :)

    Windows 10 search not working service-specific error code - 1906441725

    My Windows 10 search feature is not working in Windows or Outlook. I tried to rebuild index, but my indexing is not running. I tried to restart Windows Search, but I received the error referencing service-specific error code - 1906441725. I have tried
    restarting Cortana, but that has not worked either. Any help is much appreciated.
