Windows 10: Unable to Search

    Unable to Search


    the title lol
    basically i can press the windows button, and in order to launch steam or something like that i have to manually press all apps, then find the folder and launch the application. however, when i press the search button, nothing happens at all. it annoys me so i was wondering how i could simply search up "steam" and get the search to work again.

    EDIT: i'm pretty sure it has something to do with cortana as she's isnt in task manager (i renamed one of the folders where cortana is) aka C:/Windows/SystemApps/Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy

    Rename the Cortana folder back to what it's supposed to be.
