Windows 10: Windows 10 cannot search programs anymore
RE : right click at Start button > Search option is on the list
i did activate cortana then im not sure what happend but i either did or attempted to get rid of her, also that search says for windows and web, and when i click on it nothing happens either
Edit: as i said before that search does not work and right clicking an open spot does not show an option for cortana
For now, use the 2nd method. Right click at Start button > click Search.
I'll try to find the tutorial for enabling Cortana Search.
as i said twice now (not getting an attitude just saying) clicking on that does nothing
Perhaps we are not in the same page.
First suggestion was to click at the Cortana search box. That, you said it does not work.
2nd suggestion was to RIGHT click at the Start button.
See my screenshot on Post #11.
i swear, i right click the start button i get whats in post #11 and when i click on it nothing
I have only 3 more suggestions :
1. On your Post #12, you said "......also that search says for windows and web....."
Apparently you have Cortana disabled, because if Cortana is enabled, the search bar will say "Ask me anything".
So, use this tutorial and enable Cortana
Cortana - Turn On or Off in Windows 10
** Perhaps, if you don't mind, put the taskbar back to the bottom horizontally. Until the problem is resolved ? **
2. Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.
Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
> press Enter.
It will take quite sometime.
When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.
If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
If the report is #3, use this method................
In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
> press Enter.
Again it will take some time.
When finished, it will give you a report.
3. Do a Repair Install
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
i cant even turn it on because to do that you need to click on the magnifying glass, and surprise nothing happens so i cant exactly turn cortana on (no pun intended) and windows+s does nothing either
Well. Suggestions #2 and 3.
When you open the start menu, is there a way that when you start typing, it displays only programs installed starting with those letters? Or at least show more than just the top 3 options?

Whenever I want to search for a specific program it doesn't show anything.
For example if I search 'Steam' a program that exist in the OS, it will find nothing.
I also noticed that it doesn't search files that aren't inside the OS drive. (A song...
