    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.

    It seems Microsoft has fixed the issue now on their end.

    UPDATE: A Microsoft spokesperson says the issue should now be resolved for most. You need to reboot your PC -- at least once. In my case, third reboot was the charm. No word on what caused the issue or how Microsoft intends to prevent this from happening in the future.

    A Windows search box issue affecting some machines has been resolved for most users and in some cases, you might need to restart your device. Check the Windows message center for the latest updates:

    It's crazy that you have to hack the Windows Registry (even on Win 10 Pro) to stop local searches from being sent to Bing.

    If you want to stop searches from being sent to Bing, should the first four DWORD values be set to 0 and the last one set to 1?

    Hello mate,

    These are the values for off:

    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search]
    "AllowSearchToUseLocation"=dword:00000000
    "BingSearchEnabled"=dword:00000000
    "ConnectedSearchUseWeb"=dword:00000000
    "CortanaConsent"=dword:00000000
    "DisableWebSearch"=dword:00000001

    I decided to turn this off since I don't want searches being sent to MS and prefer to use a browser when I want to search the web. This setting should be available in Settings and not be set by a registry fix.

    This doesn't work on version 1909 (Build 18363.693). I want to activate it but no chance. Turn On or Off Search online and include web results in Windows 10-nvidia_share_4nr1gcejak.png
    Can anyone else confirm/disprove this?
