    Windows 10 Search/Cortana Bug

    Hi guys. I did a fresh reinstall of Windows 10. Worked flawlessly, even the activation (pretty proud of myself lol) but bit of a weird bug happens sometimes. If I left click on Search next to start bar, it will light up but not open. It will on the second click but just a bit of an annoyance. Somethinf similar happened with Store where it flashed them closed. I clicked it again and its been working fine since and it also happened once on Windows Update. Not major issues I know but I'd love to know what it is. Thanks

    Edit: I have done a SFC check and its come back with no errors. It did happen prior to the clean reinstall and I did the powershell command but it made all the apps go funny with a @ at the beginning of them.

    Is this Windows 10 original version or version 10586? The new Windows version has a lot of bugs and I do believe that was one of them. I reverted back to the original version of Windows 10. If you choose to stay with 10586, you may to wait till Microsoft releases a patch. Although not everyone has experienced this issue.

    I'm on the new build. So glad its not just me. I thought it would have been my DVD burning program as I only really notice it during or after shortly I have closed down that program. I was going to try running in compatibility mode but if it is a known bug then that's fine I thought it was just me! Thanks for the reply
