    Cortana box is your search box.

    If you left click at Start button > click Search > it will lead you right back to Cortana search box.

    Have I misunderstood what you meant ?

    I can open he start menu, but cannot type anything there to search anything. Searching works in the Cortana box.

    Windows 10 works in this way for a long time. That is not any issue. Provided you dont have any program like Classic Shell installed.
