Today I started Outlook 2019 and wanted to search for an e-mail but I can't. The search bar which is normally above All, Unread, ... (which is again above the list of e-mails) is missing. To be clear, what's missing is the input field where the text "Search current mailbox" appears in this example screen shot:

Look at the input field where the text "Search current mailbox" appears

Where do I activate it again?

I made a quick Google search without success. I looked into the Outlook options, but didn't find an entry. Under the ribbon tab View you can only change between Compact, Separate and Preview.

Now I run the Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) with the following result:

Outlook Configuration Protocol

New email notifications are not displayed because the Outlook shortcut (Outlook 2016.lnk) is missing from the 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs' folder. Windows requires an Outlook shortcut to exist in this folder for email notifications to work. Click the 'Click here ...' link and then follow the steps at the bottom of the article for repairing your Office 'Click-to-run' installation.

    You can install available updates for both Office and Windows to see if it helps. – Perry Jul 15 '19 at 1:14

    Haven't seen similar reports of this issue. You can try Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA) to run tests. It can gather the Outlook profile configuration information that's helpful when you troubleshoot problems: support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4098558/… – Perry Jul 18 '19 at 9:06

In Outlook 2019, the search field is in the title bar on the very top.

  • Do you have a screenshot? Mine doesn‘t seem to have it. Or do you mean Office 365? – testing Mar 29 at 16:49
