    Windows 10 Task Bar Search Bug

    Windows 10 taskbar search does not work. The normal search, when you open up file explorer works perfectly. I am connected to the internet. I do not use Cortana. I have not registered the E-mail for Cortana. I have tried searching multiple files. It just doesn't work. I'm not sure what else I should tell you. Oh, I always get this whenever I search:

    There was a time when it did work normally and as it should. I'm not sure when it stopped working.

  2. Microsoft Edge gone on task bar

    Seems to be a major bug in Windows 10. I did a system restore to revive the start key and search box but I've lost Edge in "all apps" and on the task bar.

    Cortana search box will not work when task bar is located at top of screen.

    I have placed my task bar at the top of my screen for a good 15 years. I also like to have the Cortana search box on the task bar however, when the task bar is at the top the search bar will not display. I do not want to have to hit the search icon in order
    to activate a search. I would like this search field to show. If I drag my task bar to the bottom of the screen it appears.

    My windows 10 build is 14393.187

    Windows 10 Task Bar Search Bug

    Hi, I am also experiencing the same bug. I don't use Cortana either nor did I sign in with my outlook account to Windows. I get the same search result "Something went wrong".

    This is more about using the search menu to run programs, rather than searching files, it doesn't display that either.

  7. Cortana is not a search engine, it is a search assistant/semi AI which sends the search queries to Bing.

    Windows 10 Task Bar Search Bug

    Again Cortana is the new Search engine for Windows 10. Even before in Windows 8.1, you could have search queries sent to

    Also keep in mind that there will be problems that Microsoft is patching as they get reports back about them. It will take up to next year to fix all issues that Windows 10 still has.

    Now of course if you load Firefox, it changes the default of to any search engine you choose for off OS inquiries. The only way to bypass the whole Cortana/Bing thing is to use the regular search in Explorer, or one of the third party utilities.

    Of course the best one will always be good old Midnight Commander. Midnight Commander for Windows download |
