    Search?


    Hi, I have lost the 'Search the web and windows' facility. It was there yesterday but gone this morning. I am in UK so don't get Cortana but should still be able to search the PC and web.

    you should be able to get Cortana, its available in the UK

    Do you mean the search box at the bottom is missing?
    If so, when you right click on the taskbar does it show an option for Cortana?

    Hi, Thank you Paul. This morning the search facility is back again. I also downloaded a language pack for English UK and eventually got Cortana working. Must say I don't find it much use more of a gimmick so far.

    Hi,
    Glad to hear you got it working

    I don't use Cortana much on the desktop, but it is quite handy on the Phone
    Over time I might use it more
