Install the latest update:  18363.628

It resolves the search box bug.

My PC is completely up to date win 10.

Is this an additional behind the scenes update that is not yet automatically available?

Just saw a solution in another forum and also this reason:  https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Windows-10-Suchfunktion-derzeit-fuer-viele-Nutzer-kaputt-Workaround-verfuegbar-4653892.html (german - use browser translation features)

In powershell:

# startmenu empty fix 
New-ItemProperty 'HKCU:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search' -Name BingSearchEnabled -Value 0 -PropertyType DWORD -Force -verbose | out-null 
New-ItemProperty 'HKCU:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search' -Name CortanaConsent -Value 0 -PropertyType DWORD -Force -verbose | out-null 
gps searchui | kill -force -Verbose

Open in new window

Hi McKnife ...

But if you are all up to date, you all ready have that update ...

"If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB4528759) will be offered to you automatically. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog."
