My automatic Windows updates kept failing, so I installed the latest Windows 10 update from Microsoft (in-place upgrade). But now, my Start Menu search doesn't work at all, and my search inside an Explorer window doesn't work properly. Start Menu works, as long as I don't type anything (no search, but otherwise I can use the Start menu). my start menu search. Sometimes I can type something in the box, but not always. However, it never works.
The Start Menu search (and explorer window search) works fine in the other Windows account on this computer. Both accounts are administrator accounts.
What I tried:
- Windows Troubleshooter -- search and indexing
- Restarting Windows Search service
- Rebuilt windows 10 search index using control panel "indexing options"
Since it's only a problem in one account, can I "reset" the account settings somehow? Is deleting %appdata% for this user inadvisable?
