    Windows Explorer Search Bar won't let me type in it


    I switched to 10 from 7 yesterday because of the support drop, trying to get things how I like it, but something appears to be wrong with specifically the search bar in Windows Explorer, sometimes it works fine, but then when I go to click on it, nothing happens at all, it won't let me type into it, and this seems to stick around until I restart the computer.

    Not the greatest first impression..., Windows Pro 64 bit. version 1909 (18363.592)
