    Search Bar Missing From Start Menu

    Hello everybody,
    I am having some trouble with my start menu. Originally, at the bottom there was a search bar. Then I installed Start10, made some changes, and then decided to uninstall the program and go back to the default start menu. The uninstallation required a restart, which I did, however now the start menu bottom search bar is gone. I tried going through the start menu settings but no luck. So I tried reinstalling Start 10, but it says that the computer must restart to finish the earlier uninstallation before a new install can begin. I have tried turning the laptop completely off multiple times but get the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    Have at the link below:
    Stardock Start10 Manual Uninstall

    I have never used the above site. Please scan any files you download from the site for malware BEFORE they are run.

    If you decide to perform a manual uninstall of Start10 using the above method, please reboot after the uninstall is complete and let us know if the problem has been resolved.


    Edit: Have a look at this thread on the Stardock forums as it may be a solution without manual uninstall
