    How to get rid of used Search which blocks my Menu!!


    anyone seen this? from the "spyglass" search-from-taskbar I thought I'd find and pullup onedrive since it is hidden somewhere - nasty surprise... The massive rectangular search popup then obliterates my normal view of the contents of the Start Button . there is no convenient "X" to opt-out of it. Everytime I hit the search button now that same search pops up and obliterates the menu.

    clues??

    If you right click the taskbar, and select search, you have the option to disable the rectangle, which clears it

    not what I'm referring to. when I enter a search term by whatever means, a tall rectangular box opens upon hitting the Start button, showing the results of whatever the search is doing, but nothing in there clears that box out of the way, so it stands right on top of and slightly right of the Start Menu, obliterating everything. I finally powered off to get rid of it. thankfully gone after full start. There's no close button anywhere, ESC doesn't work, nada. it has no appearance on the taskbar so can't right-click/close

    this is not on the desktop. Its a popup when the start button is hit, either right-click or left-click.

    Just click on an empty space of your screen.
