    Search text doesn't appear

    This is a rather strange problem, the search text when searching from the start menu isn't appearing. I can still highlight it though. Any ideas?

    Edit: Also just realized the buttons to the left aren't visible either.

    Hi, assuming you haven't relevant system restore points (system restore is off by default in Win 10- which has surprised people) or disk images to restore (everyone using Windows really needs to use disk imaging as Win 10 in particular seems fragile) then:

    I suggest an in-place upgrade repair install
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    which will allow you to keep everything bar a few settings, and it will disable system restore again.

    Hopefully this will resolve the problem, albeit using a sledgehammer approach.

    The Powershell commands often recommended to reinstall apps seem to break several currently, so pending news that now works, I would advise against using them.

    This looks like a text colour issue where the text and background are the same colour. I wonder if simply changing to a new colour scheme or theme will sort the problem out?
