    Windows 10 Start Menu Search Not Working


    I was reluctant to run the update August 30, 2019—KB4512941 to and for good reasons after having to reinstall window on my HP Workstation.

    Now Fast forward a month and surly the issues must be resolved ? Well after install the update on my workstation laptop now the

    search function doesn't work. I have tried countless ideas:



    1.Run File Troubleshooter

    2 Run sfc / scannow

    3. completely remove all third-party antivirus software

    4. Rebuild Swapfile.sys

    5.Restart Windows Explorer

    6. Check Windows Search Service


    7. Check Cortana


    all to no avail. I just read that on MS Web page https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4512941/windows-10-update-kb4512941 Is there any solution in sight?

    Known issues in this update
    Symptom Workaround

    Microsoft is getting reports that a small number of users may not receive results when using Windows Desktop Search and may see high CPU usage from SearchUI.exe. This issue only occurs on devices that have disabled searching the web using Windows Desktop Search.

    We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in mid-September.

    :)
