  1. Windows Search blacked out!!


    I use 3 finger gesture for windows search,

    As soon as i search any thing it gets blacked out....


    Windows Search blacked out!! f2ce998f-1098-42f0-bc16-812437f5d0d3?upload=true.jpg

    In this it detects the pdf Reader but doesn't show the app

    So , when i click on the white bar at the top I can see the full window like

    Windows Search blacked out!! bf17a77b-13e5-413f-ab8d-96f86889b5f9?upload=true.jpg

    clicking on the white space of Windows search


    Windows Search blacked out!! ddd967dd-1976-4f67-9cc2-9f6c4ba22d8b?upload=true.jpg

    after clicked by the mouse the window appears..


    I thought windows update was the problem the 2004 one .. So i thought of coming back to previous version but it didn't help

    And though my PC is upto date I am still facing the problem for about 6 months....


    And not to mention the search was first showing the Web Search section if the file didn't excited .. But now unfortunately even that is not working from past year...

    Nothing worked


    Can someone please resolve this issue


    Thank you

    :)

    Black screen after 'Starting Windows' sequence

    Sounds like the old... windows black screen of death.

    Try this quoted from "VisiHow" article "Repair Windows 7 Black Screen of Death":

    They, also, have some other options there, too.
    Google search and you will find a lot of the "Windows Black Screen of Death with cursor" fixes.

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Windows Search blacked out!!

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
