Windows search missing / can't search for apps

Post by heavymod » Tue Feb 11, 2020 8:22 am

Since I installed Search Everything, I can no longer click on the windows symbol and search for anything. This continues even if I have quit out of the SE app, and closed it in the taskbar.

Is this expected behavior?

Thanks for your post heavymod.

What version of Everything are you using? (Everything -> Help -> about)
What version of Windows are you using? (Start -> Run -> winver)

Does the issue occur before you start Everything? or only after you've shown an Everything window?

Everything doesn't touch Windows Search.

Microsoft Search consists of 2 components: an online-search and a local search, where the online-serach is prioritized.
They messed up the on-line part a couple of days ago, causing your issue.
It has nothing to do with Everything.

Search the internet for solutions or try this workaround: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8764
