    Hello mouzakigeek, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you mean the method used in the tutorial below, then you may need to restart the computer afterwards to apply.

    Reinstalled Cortana using the following procedure:

    1. Open an elevated PowerShell window, press Win + X keys to open PowerShell.

    2. Execute following commands one at time.

    Code:
    Get-Process searchui | Stop-Process  –Force
    
    Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    
    3. Restart your computer.

    What happens when you type into Cortana does it list your search option?

    In that case, you may need to do a repair install to fix Cortana.
