Which edition/version of Windows 10 are you running?

Are you able to get into Reliability History to determine if any entries are being captured/recording when the search bar attempts fail?

Try running "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) via the Command Prompt.

Likewise, if necessary, "dism".

Late thought: The problem is that the "Type here to search" box is the search box/bar that is not working - correct?

That was my initial thought; however, I realized that that may not be the search bar in question...

Please confirm or correct as necessary.

Windows 10 information?

Are you able to get into Update History to determine if there have been any update problems?

Use "WIN" + "I" > [Find a setting] and type in "Update History" (without quotes).

Are you able to get into Reliability History to determine if any entries are being captured/recording when the search bar attempts fail?

Note: You can use the same process but type in "Reliability History" (again without quotes) to look for errors there.
