A reader seems pretty ticked off about Windows 10: “I would very much like to know where you got your version of Worthles 10. None of the things in your screen shots show up on my screen. There is no Search box any place on my screen. I am not 12 years old so I do not wish to talk to my computer.”
I got my version of Windows 10 the same way most everyone else did, I just hit that upgrade nag on my PC and let it install. It sounds like you’re having an issue with your search and I’ve got three quick solutions to try.
1. Make sure it isn’t hidden. Check out this article for details: http://www.worldstart.com/missing-search-box-found/
2. Your user settings may be corrupt. Try creating a new user account. Check out this article for instructions: http://www.worldstart.com/help-i-cant-access-app-store-in-windows-10/
3. Your Windows 10 installation may have a problem. Try refreshing your PC. This article explains how. http://www.worldstart.com/windows-10-how-does-reset-work/
I had a friend with a similar issue and the refresh option did the trick.
