    Latest Win10 update has caused multiple problems

    Hello all, today I got a notification from Windows 10 telling me there was a special update that would take longer than a normal one, so I did it and now I have a few problems.

    #1 when I try to search for something in Settings it always comes up with no search results, even if I search for something easy like "sound" or "audio"

    #2 When I right click on my speaker icon on my taskbar it used to give me a menu that allowed me to access the volume mixer and the recording and playback devices. Now when I right click on it nothing happens.

    #3 The audio is really low, although that maybe be remedied if I could actually get to the audio settings. But I can't find them as I'm not used to having to drill down through the menus to find it.

    Thanks for your time.

    Sounds like you need to remove the device and driver from Device Manager and install the correct sound driver or just let Windows install it. As for searching for stuff, sound or audio is pretty broad. It is best to always do a clean install if you are seeing issues pop up every time you log in or boot up.
