Operating Systems Powershell

Windows 10 not searching desktop applications with cortona

Out of the blue, my start -> search stopped functioning, it would just be blank.

I reinstalled Cortana using the following procedure:

Open an elevated Command Prompt window (press win + X, and then press A)
Type start powershell and press enter
Run the command (in one line):
Get-AppXPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
After 30 seconds the problem was solved on my machine. Incredible.
