    Any time I try to start Cortana with Windows key + S or from the Start Menu, I can see it start in Task Manager, but it then disappears. Nothing gets displayed.

    Starting Cortana with Windows + S key only begins the application as seen in the Task manager but it immediately dies and there is nothing displayed to be copied or to show.

    Are you using Avast? Reported as causing this problem.

    I am hoping this thread is still being monitored. I am having this exact problem. With respect to the following:

    You could try this:
    1. Open run command, type PowerShell and press enter to open it
    2. Right click on its icon on taskbar and select Run as administrator
    3. Paste the below script
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    4. Wait for the Powershell to complete the process, ignore any errors if displayed in the window.

    I copied and pasted the ENTIRE script as shown, and it didn't work. Not familiar with this, so I need to know exactly what to type in. Thanks

    I've just upgraded my laptop to Win10 (did my desktop several months ago). The laptop is unable to take input to the Search the web and Windows task bar. I've searched the web, but all I've found was references to killing and restarting Search from the task manager, but there is no Search running. Also any time I try to start Cortana, I can see it start in Task Manager, but it then disappears. So the short of it is can't start Cortana and there is no Search running to restart. How do I get this feature to work?
    I had the same problem although after a few days and maybe a windows update it was fixed. i was told id have to do a repair install which would delete things.

    Ok guys. I had the same issue. Try opening the search bar. If you can do that, yet are not able to type anything then left click the top left expand button found in the start menu area. After that try typing in search bar. Let me know if that works.
