    The latest update seems to have fixed my multiple monitors problem. Thanx to all who showed me workarounds but now the search function on the computer and any folder is not working showing a “clock” like icon with former searches but not allowing me to add a new search. Anyone experience this and have a fix. Thanx!

      This topic is under Win10.
      What version of Win10 are you running? 1903, 1909, 2004?
      Which Edition? Home or Pro?
      What was the latest update that caused the problem? May? June?
      Search in the Taskbar? File Explorer?

      It’s the June update and the problem occurs in both taskbar and explorer.

      could you possibly upload a screenshot/s either png/jpeg of the issue please.
      Pictures can speak..

      No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created IT- AE

      Hmmmm. Search had been broken in 1909 several months ago, but I thought that MS had got that fixed.

      Sorry was called away for two days. While away, apparently the computer rebooted adn installed another update. Now search works but I still get these strange icons and past searches showing. I can live with that, I suppose but cannot figure what the “clocks mean.

      I have a screen shot but do not know how to insert it here.
