    Hello dafydd, :)

    By default, it'll be the Cortana icon that will show on the taskbar instead of the Search icon unless you have disabled Cortana.

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

    Cortana - Enable or Disable in Windows 10

    Do you have Show Cortana icon checked in its settings?

    Disabled Cortana?

    If so, do have a "Show Search icon" option instead?

    The only way I can get a search is by right click on start and search is there but no icon/glass to be seen.
