    My timeline feature is not working at all in 1803. Checked the suggested applicable registry, group policy settings, trying a local user account, clearing data and nothing shows except large thumbnails of whatever windows I currently have open, but nothing earlier. The "new" taskbar icon is there, but it functions like the old task viewer. If I have no windows open, it just shows something like "keep using your PC and your history will appear below", but nothing is there after 18 days.
    My online Microsoft account shows my activity so I know it's being uploaded and collected, but nothing displays on my PC. So, I decided to download the latest Windows 10 from Microsoft and do a repair install from the ISO file it created. Unfortunately, still no timeline. SFC and DISM utilities show no file or component store corruption.

    Hello Ronnie, :)

    Double check to make sure the Windows Search service is set to be enabled, running, and Automatic (Delayed Start).

    In addition, make sure you have turned on Let Windows collect my activities from this PC in Settings from below.

    Turn indexing on

    I had the same problem as several others here. I had to:

    1) Open Windows Explorer (for example with Win+e)

    2) Go to the C: drive

    3) Attempt to search for anything (example: "test")

    4) Explorer showed a small bar saying that search is slow, and to fix it, Turn Index On

    5) Click it before the search completed and the bar vanished

    Boom, Windows Timeline appeared in that Task View.

    What an annoying bug! Timeline ought to just always be there, with a message about why it's not working, instead of making us guess our way through these sorts of steps.
