Start menu search box missing


 

To all listers
My wife's laptop installed Windows 10, has lost the search box on start menu. How to solve this.
When I use NVDA, and press the Start menu key, it just says: pin view, and I can't type anything to search.
Any help would be appreciated.

I think this happens if certain settings were set on a previous version of windows. I've seen this dfault this way as well.

Did it get updated from windows 7?

I saw in an earlier message, that Shawn said to try a system reset.  I would think a system restore would be the first thing to try, if available.  A reset may solve the problem as well but I don't know if you would lose all sorts of settings and other modifications you have made.  I would find out before trying a system reset.

this seems to be a long standing bug, now and again this happens I had it happen on one computer the only real fix is reset the pc! or install the classic shell I would rather reset if it was me.

Press Windows+d to move to the Desktop, then press tab.  This should move you to the “Start button”, press enter.  After pressing enter, please describe what is announced, then press tab and describe what is announced next.  Continue pressing tab and describing what you hear until the system loops back to what you first heard.

 

Cheers

I have had similar things just this morning.
Good thing I had a system restore.
I installed a lot of optional features then I deleted a lot of optionals because they didn't work.
I then decided to change my language to my country new zealand, it worked but sadly ended up not completed and then decided that it would just not work at all, ie search box only appeared from time to time to read with nvda at any rate and if I clicked things some settings never entered as if I had a bad keyboard oor something then the worst of it was that I tried optional features, I got a button that said typing, a list of features aand the history but no add button.
I am restoring back to 8 this morning which is when I started this thing.
If it works, I will make points before I try to fiddle round with anything I also tried to remove something that were not needed, and I assume those are critical system apps so I won't touch those either.
This aint my box, so if I do get it into a good state I may just leave it alone I do want to get a few fonts and languages set up on it though.
