Re: Win10 start menu search box keeps saying "suggestions are available"

I think they do that for this reason, to get feedback from users, If there is backlash they will make the change, I quite like it this way.

Well its good this was an easy serverside change.
Don't honestly know why microsoft do what they do sometimes at random.

Well, just as suddenly as this appeared, at least for me, it's gone. I
tried a search last night and again today, and did not hear
suggestions available, it worked just as it has until the last couple days.

And that is what has happened. The visuals have not changed at all.

It would have made a lot more sense if, when nothing was found, a
message such as, "No results found," were given. Even something
like, "Suggestions not available," makes little sense, as it's
oblique. In virtually all cases, unless you've typed something "really exotic"
there will be suggestions available. Notifying someone of this is
like notifying them that water is wet.

It used to be understood that if you published and profited from a
mass media platform you should also be responsible for its content.
That idea is nowadays considered quaintly archaic. There is no real
accountability, and almost limitless ability to post any kind of
ridiculous and scurrilous nonsense. God help us.
