Windows button & search not working prop.

Hello everybody,

I was hoping to get some help here, somehow my windows button and search button in the taskbar are not responding/not working

Windows button = slow, it opens after 1 second.
Search button = not working at all.

When i click on the windows button and then just type something nothing happens either, it was before.

Thanks you in advance and greetings,

If you're having problems with Windows 10 on your PC, you could use push-button reset to refresh or reset Windows.

Refresh your PC Fixes software problems by reinstalling the OS while preserving the user data, user accounts, and important settings. All other preinstalled customizations are restored to their factory state. In Windows 10, this feature no longer preserves user-acquired Windows apps.

Reset your PC prepares the PC for recycling or for transfer of ownership by reinstalling the OS, removing all user accounts and contents (e.g. data, Classic Windows applications, and Universal Windows apps), and restoring preinstalled customizations to their factory state.

The options above are great for what they are intended for, but you could also do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything other than all installed Windows Updates.

Hi holdum & others,

Thanks for you replie!
Somehow, after a AMD update it works good again, strange enough..

Maybe it had something to do with Visuals or somesort.
