comment Windows 8 Stuck on Start Screen File Search
@Llamanerds unfortunately, the laptop which has this problem has been stolen two weeks ago. I'll try to replicate the problem as soon as I install 8 to another one and try to see if user account is related or not.

Greetings Llamanerds, First of all, I appreciate your efforts. Thank you for posting an answer. However, I have stated several times withing my question that I had rebuild search index. Therefore, I ask: Have you tried reading the question and updates completely? I'm not even sure if this a copy/paste answer or not.

@dangph I do not understand how it is even possible. Are you able to access Task Manager while your metro ui overlay still on screen? Have you installed any metro ui app for task manager? It is weird because desktop and metro ui are two different environments and as far as I know you cannot run a desktop application within metro ui natively.

No. Since Task Manager window is opened within desktop, it is not possible to access Task Manager when this problem occurs.

Yep. I checked some of them. There are suggestions mostly about rebuilding search index, including different locations in index, etc. I couldn't see anything directly related to this getting stuck issue.

It's been working before for file search as I mentioned at the end of second paragraph. You only need to select Files from right after you type the search term. I believe problem is caused by search functionality itself. No matter how you trigger search, it doesn't work. I mentioned about non-functionality at the end of first update. Thank you for your comment, I hope this thread won't be lost.
