    Cortana `Ask me anything` is always white as of 11/3/17 on Fall Creato


    Cortana `Ask me anything` is always white as of 11/3/17 on Fall Creators edition I have done both the registary trick and Location trick.

    Still goes back to White after a re-Start. Also looking at regedit after the Location trick there is no entries on HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search\Flighting\0

    BUT on HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search\Flighting\1\WhiteSearchBox
    The WhiteSearchBox Value is 1.
    I am going to do a Re-start on this and come back and I going the Bet the above is reversed I'll let you know.

    I am Back and yes the Above to totally re-written but in reversed: This has got to be the area of the problem.
    More test:
    I do believe that this is done by Microsoft itself by some server-side change. I did a experiment I used the Settings>Region and Language. to get Cortana Search box back to normal. I test it and it went from White and back to gray like it is suppose to then I pulled the LAN line and did a re-start and tested it again it went white and back to Gray Like it is suppose to. Now I plug the LAN line back in and tested it went to White and stayed White. So Something in the Cloud/Server on Microsoft side is doing this.

    Hi Starfighterj

    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.

    I did that Already with Microsoft Tech Support, but did as you said again And it still stays White.

    Cortana/Search field color changing from default gray to white - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    This has worked for me, through several restarts and searches.
