    deleted SEARCH


    I accidentally deleted the SEARCH icon from my task bar and I can't get it back. What is the secret?

    John, did you make registry changes before it disappeared? Did you make any changes to your location or region?

    No changes that I am aware of. I was trying to find a file and noticed SEARCH was gone.

    Search Icon or Box - Show or Remove on Windows 10 Taskbar - Windows 10 Forums

    Try checking one of the correct options to bring it back. (Right click on the taskbar> check the appropriate option)

    You may even find it more convenient not to have Cortana's search on your taskbar. You can launch Cortana via
    Windows key + S, Windows key + Q - & Windows key + C (when Cortana is fully set up)

    ....or

    WinKey - then just type your query
    There's no input box until you start typing

    It takes a bit to break habit, but give it a shot

    Slartybart, that's great! Press the Windows Logo key and start typing what you're searching for. I'll use that one.
