In Windows 10, if I open the StartMenu and then type an application name like mspaint, slack, skype, etc., the application is found but then clicking on the name does nothing -- it does not launch the application.
The failure started about a month ago. I do not know what conditioned it.
These applications are installed and I can launch them in other ways. For example, I can open the Start menu and choose an application from "most used" or from the alphabetical list and it does launch.
How can I launch an application from the Start Menu search?
