The search bar in Windows 10 is a central point from where we can access programs, websites, emails, files and in general all the content hosted on the system. For this reason, this is a quick way to open these elements, but with the passage of time it is possible that the search bar has errors that affect its operation and therefore we can see the following:

  • Results are not displayed
  • Slow response to results
  • Does not allow to write text on it



All this affects our interaction with this search bar, if you are going through this getFastAnswer will give you the solution so that this does not affect your search experience in Windows 10 anymore ..
