Which makes it more annoying for the end user since windows
updates occur on average about once a month. The cycle of
security and bug fixes never seem to end, to the point of being
ridiculous, and it becomes especially upsetting when it affects
software that you need for your daily job routines.

Sometimes, things just happen when you update Windows.

Interesting though. I updated both my desktop computers, as well
as my laptop, plus a host of client computers, and have not had an
issue with the start menu search field.

This problem has nothing to do with JAWS.?? The June Security
Update to Windows 10 1809 broke the start menu search box, plain
and simple.?? How do I know??? Because my techie friend accessed
my computer remotely using Team Viewer and confirmed that there
were no search results when I typed a search phrase into the
search box. And I don't get any search results if I use Narrator
or NVDA, either.

have had to uninstall JAWS and reinstall it, in order to correct
the search box issue. This happens particularly on systems where
Windows 7 was updated to Windows 10.

Sorry to hear that Drop Box screwed you over.?? Last week Windows
Update screwed me over by breaking the search box on my Windows 10
start menu.?? Does MS care??? Of course not.?? That's just the way
it is, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. My techie
friend is visiting me today to try to fix it, but if he can't,
screw MS. I'll just install Classic Shell or some other
third-party program to restore a working search box.?? MS
management is so incompetent and arrogant that they release
updates before they have been thoroughly tested for bugs.??
Windows 10 Feature Update 1903 is such a mess that MS is now
preventing some computers from installing it to avoid potential
