In the past 24 hours, I’m among many who started getting no results from Windows Search. Type anything into the search box, and nothing loads. I can’t even type a command.
I tried everything in the Microsoft support document Fix problems in Windows Search to no avail. Plenty of other articles on the topic, such as Windows 10 search not working – fix, offer suggested fixes. None of them worked.
I finally found the solution. Removing Bing from your searches fixes the problem. This fix requires making a registry change. Do so at your own risk and be sure to backup your PC and registry first.
