Hello,
This problem I and others have encountered is described at

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-win_cortana/windows-10-creators-update-windows-key-s-search/2e25a9dc-6ca5-4341-8e88-b4a3d26cb7ed

I went throught the standard (free) tweaking program but it didn't resolve it.

The solution I found at this above link site has worked and please consider for inclusion at tweaking. :

"
Confirm your search is working at all: Create a new user and check if search works. If it does, go on (with your old user where search does not work).
Backup RegKey: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
Delete the whole Key (including all sub keys + values)
Access the search (e.g. press windows key and try enter something)
Nothing will happen. Try this a few times, when it starts working again the key has been recreated.
Either import the backup or just use the new settings (which you may want to adjust)


Regards, Paul

I've passed this onto Shane for his consideration.
