Fix Windows 10 search

The issue

The Windows 10 search is not working. No results. Infinite loading.

Solution

Reinstall Cortana (even if you don’t use it at all)

  • open powershell (with win+r and type powershell)
  • paste this:
Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

It should take couple of seconds.

There are other solutions related to folders permission and registry keys but non of them did help.
