  1. Windows search bar not working


    I deleted C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy\cache cuz the icons of search results are broken. Now my search bar isn't working. There is only a blue magnifier in the search window when I press win+s and it doesn't search anything. If anyone want to help, I could use the copies of your two folders: C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy and %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewyor if you have a better solution please tell me. I'll really appreciate it.

    :)

  2. Search Bar/Cortana

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.

  3. search does not work in task bar. DOES work in File Explorer

    Task bar search does not work and I have tried all of the recommended steps. Had to recently reinstall Windows 10 64b (preserved personal data) and the search has not worked since.

    Suggestions? Recommendations?

    HyperSLI (Enabling SLI on non-sli motherboards)

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.
