    Interesting. I would not have thought that would cause that. Good find. :)

    Now we did do a a restore before we figured out that option was what was causing us trouble.

    I upgraded by laptop on release day, and had the search box there initially and it was default.

    Just upgraded my desktop and it was the small cortana icon. I do not have small icons enabled...

    I found the solution....... Get ready for this......

    Go into your toolbar settings and uncheck use small icons.... Took me a windows format to figure that out when we set it back to small icons it disappeared.... You can credit David Strausser with the fix :) lol Funny, huh?

    Hello gp41, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you see the Cortana icon instead of the Search icon, then it just means that you have Cortana turned on. It will still do searches. :)

    Lol, I know I can go into cortana to do searches if necessary, but would really like it to display the entire search box in the taskbar. It was quite a hassle on my laptop with a smaller screen, thus taking up room, but on my larger monitor, it would be nice.

    EDIT: Normally you should have the option to show search box, but all I have is show cortana icon or hide.Hide or Show Search Box or Search Icon on Taskbar in Windows 10-searchbar.png

    Odd. As a test, turn on small icons, apply, and turn off small icons and apply to see if it may toggle it back.

    Tried that again, but have tried that before even with restarting in between changing the settings.

    What is your screen resolution set to? If it's lower than 1024 x 768, it will not have the search box available either.
