Windows 10 Search Bar Is Not Working!

Hello friends,

I am new in this forum and this is my first post here. I am encountering a serious problem in the Windows 10 search bar. When I try to type something on there, I cant. Can anyone suggest some ideas to fix it?
I found this post online where discussed using the command prompt. But friends I have never used this command before. Can anyone suggest some ideas about this? I am a little confused. Please help.

Don't know what that command line does, but does the problem go away if you reboot your computer ? Cause all the other suggestions from your link involve restarting some processes.

You can try the suggestions on that page. They may work or they may not.

Have you tried restoring your computer to a previously saved configuration? Does Run prompt still open? Try it, press windows key and R key together and it should open a text box. You can then enter 'rstrui' from there to launch System Restore and load a restore point if you have any.
