    It turns out that your taskbar must be on the bottom of your main display to have "Show search box" as well.

    Hello Martin, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It sounds like something has interfered with the .bat file restarting explorer. You can do this below to start explorer again.

    1) Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) in "More details" view.

    2) Click on File (menu bar), and click on Run new task.

    3) Type explorer, and click on OK.

    Hi, I ran the "Show_Search_Icon_on_Taskbar.bat" file and the screen blanked out. I got the desktop to show up again by restarting the system, but now the taskbar items have white boxes around them, and my Firefox start screen has an all-black background. How do I fix this? Thanks, Karl

    Hello kman, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It sounds like something interfered with the process. See if restarting explorer may sort it for you.

    I had only the search icon (magnifying glass). Bat file did enter new keys and set DWORD but no box, just the icon as before. So I guess the question is how to turn the icon into the search box?
