After latest update some people face this issue. that windows search box didn’t work. they can’t write anything in it. hear is this simple method that fix this issue. let’s start. here i can’t write anything.
method 1: 100%fix
go to c drive / windows / system 32 folder and open ctfmon.exe . now try search box.
But when you restart it may stopped working again, just create a task to run this program every time you start the windows. press Windows Key + R, type “shell:startup” into the Run dialog .
now create a shortcut of fmon.exe and paste that in above folder.
Press Win + R (to open Run )
copy paste and press enter to run this program. “C:Windowssystem32ctfmon.exe”. it brings back the language bar and for me it allowed me to type in windows search, start menu and WINDOWS 10 apps again
I think it is due to missing Language bar or some think like that.
But when you restart it may stopped working again, just create a task to run this program every time you start the windows.
I suggest you to check if Windows search service is running.
1 . Press Windows plus R key and type “services.msc” and press enter.
2 . Locate the Windows Search service and right click on it.
3 . Click on Properties and check the start option has been enabled.
Check if issue persists.
