Search /Cortana not working in windows 10. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks 

    During optimization of Windows 10 template I removed many unwanted apps packages using Get-AppxPackage *APP* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Now task-bar search isn't working and I cant modify settings for other apps as well. 

    Is there any way to restore all these apps and get task-bar and cortana working.

  • Hello,

    Might be creating new user account will bring all apps back on that new account. Try it and see if works.

  • Yes Vijay,

    Could you open the Start Menu?

    To get the uninstalled app back, open Windows Store, then click login your Microsoft Account, after that, find the apps you have installed and choose which to install.

    For Search and Cortana not working, have you checked the article below?

    Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana

    In addition, you could also take a try with the following PowerShell command:

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Run it under PowerShell with admin rights.

    If not working, create a new account to check out, follow the steps mentioned in the troubleshooting guide I shared above.
