    Windows 10 Settings App Search Not working

    Thank you for providing some suggestions.

    I performed step 1, and at the end of the test, it reported "No changes or updates are necessary."

    I then performed step 2 and received the same message at the end of the test.

    After running the two tests above, I opened up Settings and typed "privacy", which should show some help categories (It does on my other Windows 10 computers). However, on the one computer there is no help information. It states "No result for privacy".
    It appears the Settings app help information list is empty or not found. Typing a single character, e.g., 'p', into the search box displays "No result for p".

    Any further suggestions are welcome.

    Is there a convenient way to have windows 10 try to repair itself without uninstalling my software and/or loosing all of my personal data.

    Regards...
