Re: [solved] missing start menu search field

This will occasionally happen to me also, and the only thing I can do is a complete shutdown, and things generally come back to normal. Can't say why this happens in  the first place, but it does.

Hi Brian and Sarah,

I tried typing in a Search after pressing the Windows-key and nothing happened.
When I press the Windows-key, I hear JAWS say “Pin tiles list box”.
I get the same result when using NVDA, latest public release.
Yes, I have restarted my machine, and nothing changes.

I'm on Win10 Version 2004, and when using NVDA 2020.2 after hitting the Windows Key I hear, "Start Window, Search Window, Search Box Edit Blank."

One can always try, Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file, or rolling back the Cumulative Update and letting it reapply.  I actually find doing a repair install easier, but some don't.  I discuss how to roll back recently applied Windows Updates at the outset of, Britechguy’s Standard Advice Regarding Windows 10 Issues and Their Repair
