    Search bar not working after 10041 update


    Can't type anything in the "search the web and windows" bar at the bottom. Also used to be able to click on start and type the name of the application to run it Windows would find it - this is not working either. Nothing happens when you type.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    What happens if you press the key? Nothing or something? Do you see the start menu at all?

    Start menu pops up, but then if you type anything nothing is searched.
    I can still click on All Apps etc and then browse for the app.

    Reboot. I can't think of a better suggestion I'm afraid.

    I have a very old laptop I also upgraded to 10041 and on that one pressing and then searching misses the first few letters I am looking for - before the start menu wakes up and decides to pay attention.

    If your start menu appears immediately when you press then I don't know but rebooting sometimes helps all sorts of things
