  1. Windows search showing wrong connected account in search settings


    I'm on Windows 10 Pro 1903 using a local account that has multiple Microsoft accounts added to the email/calendar app.

    However on the new windows search, in the menu located on the top right hand corner next to feedback, it is showing connected accounts and there is one of the accounts that is signed into the email/calendar app.

    However I would like to use a different account to be connected to my search.

    Is there a way to change the connected account in the search menu?

    I know I can change it to the particular account I want to use if I sign into my PC using that Microsoft account, but I would prefer to keep using a local account.

    :)

  3. fussybob Win User
    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

  4. Windows search showing wrong connected account in search settings

    Start menu Search can't click on search results leading to Settings pages + Settings search results not loading

    Hello Abhishek,

    We regret the inconvenience and at the same time we appreciate the effort you have put in to resolve the issue. Let me assist you further.

    From the description provided, I understand that you are experiencing functionality issues with Windows in the following areas:

    • Search Results in the Settings pane do not work.
    • The Search results through Search Bar in Windows is unresponsive or sporadic when it comes to basic functionality.

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to try the Search and Indexing troubleshooter to fix the problem. It makes sure that the Windows Search service is running, and checks to see whether you have the correct permissions
    to search all the directories on your computer.

    Follow the steps given below to run Search and Indexing Troubleshooter.


    • 1. Type Troubleshooting in the Search box
      from the desktop.

      2. Select the Troubleshooting option.

      3. Select View All option and select the Search
      and Indexing
      .

      4. Click on Next to perform the Search
      and Indexing troubleshooter
      and follow the steps.

    Now, follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1

    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state or were irrecoverable, then I suggest you to try the following steps to deploy the DISM command lines:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click command prompt (Run as administrator).

    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

      Important: When you run this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions.

    • To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.

      Click
      here
      for more information about running the DISM Tool.

    Method 2

    Lets try to narrow down the issue, if the issue is at a specific user level.
    I suggest you to check if the same issue occur when logged in through a different Local Administrator user account.



    Follow the steps mentioned below:

    • Assuming that you are already logged on to your user account in Windows 10, click the Start button.
    • From the Start menu, click your name from the top of the left pane.
    • From the displayed options click Sign out.
    • From the login screen, click to the different user account you want to switch to.


    However, if you do not have a separate user account, I suggest you to create another Local administrator user account by referring to the Microsoft article here: Set
    up accounts
    .

    Kindly keep us posted on the results for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank You.
