    Windows 10 Search (Cortana) Not Working

    Hi all

    So this is a well known issue with a magnitude of other users reporting it. I myself have experienced this on around 90% of all Windows 10 PC's I've worked on and configured/built so the problem is very prevalent and I'm at a loss to explain why this hasn't been fixed yet as it's utterly annoying.

    I created a short video depicting the exact issue, please have a look...

    I've tried rebuilding the Index, made sure Windows is up to date and also tried some PowerShell commands (the Get-App one) from numerous blogs I've consulted regarding this issue, all to no avail.

    This is a brand new installation (not an in-house upgrade) of Windows 10 and here are the specs...

    Windows 10 Pro, domain joined.
    16GB RAM
    2x500GB SSD in RAID 1
    ASUSTek P8P67 DELUXE motherboard with an i7 Intel CPU

    Thanks for reading/viewing
