    Thank you @FreeBooter, but it still will not work in at least build 18985 and higher.

    Hi Brink, Today it has worked for me. I had to add the BingSearchEnabled key as it was not there, and then put it to 0. CortanaConsent=0, and restarted the pc and it has worked. It might work for other people who are using this version of 1903.

    Unfortunately, the method in this tutorial is no longer supported starting with Windows 10 build 18985.

    Tutorial updated to help with the Windows Search being down with a blank search box like below in Windows 10.

    Using step 3 below to "Turn Off Search online and include web results from Bing" should fix the broken search in Windows 10.

    Great tutorial as usual, Shawn. Here are the Powershell commands in case anyone is looking for, to disable BingSearch and Cortana for the emerging issue on 02/05.

    New-ItemProperty -Path “HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search” -Name “BingSearchEnabled” -Value “0” -PropertyType DWORD -force

    New-ItemProperty -Path “HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search” -Name “CortanaConsent” -Value “0” -PropertyType DWORD -force\

    Stop-Process -Name “SearchUI”
