    Windows Search bar web results not working


    I have been using the Windows Search bar's web results. But, for a few months, it isn't working. I have two Microsoft accounts in my PC, in the other, the search works like a charm, fetching web results. I haven't done any registry tweaks, why would I?


    I love the web search. I tried deleting my user and creating it again. It works for some hours, again it goes off. The response given is: "Search the web for test" and a button "open in browser".


    What not, I have even re-installed Windows 10. But the same issue. Not working in my account but in another user account. Please help me with this problem.


    All updates installed, re-installed Windows 10 by Media Creation tool just 1 week back.


    Windows 10 build 2004


    Kind Regards,

    :)
