  • Microsoft confirms Search bug in this month’s Win10 version 1903 patch

    Posted on September 12th, 2019 at 07:40 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It looks different from last month’s Search bug in the Win10 version 1903 cumulative update. But at least it’s been officially acknowledged.

    Details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    UPDATE: Microsoft has published a long KB article explaining how to get Search to work again. Your options:

    • Run the Search and Indexing troubleshooter
    • Restart your device
    • Use a PowerShell script (provided) to reset Windows Search
    • If the previous suggestions don’t fix the problem, let us know by sending feedback in the Feedback Hub.

    Understand that these instructions are to fix the bug Microsoft released in their cumulative update.

    PowerShell scripts as a service, I always say.
