    Run not showing up in search


    After I had some issues with syncing my domain user, I cannot find "Run" when I type Run in the search box

    How can I fix that?

    Hi,
    1. Does Win key + R cause the Run box to appear?
    2. What results do you see when you search for Run? (Screenshot please?)
    3. Is search indexing working?
    4. Does choosing Apps in that search box help at all?
    5. Can you find any other programs or apps? E.g. Wordpad, Groove..
    6. Option 3 might help:
    Rebuild Search Index in Windows 10

    Thanks.

    the Run Box does not appear in Search because There's no such file. It's literally just a subroutine.
    As stated, you can press the Windows key+R. You can also Right click the Start button and choose Run, You can Left click the Start button, scroll down to the Windows System Folder, or press the Windows key+X to have many choices and the Run box.

    Thanks everyone.
    Yes - other apps do show up on search, and run works using Winkey + R
    this is what I get instead of Run:

    I disabled Cortana, so in my Windows Search it does not come up. But if I run Cortana, it does come up like yours @dalchina.

    Cortana??? Hmm- totally lost interest now it can't even set reminders in 20H2. I haven't used or done anything with Cortana - just 20H2 as default, Win key + S. In 20H2 Cortana is supposed to be disassociated from search... a separate app.

    Penny drops.. @spunk - how did you disable Cortana? And in particular, how did you enable it?

    Could that be Liargoff's problem/solution?

    Enable or Disable Cortana in Windows 10
    After disabling Cortana, If you search for it, it is still available if you want to use it, I don't.
