Fix Search Issue – Windows 10

Sometimes on trying the windows search, the results don’t come up and it shows as “fetching” indefinitely.  This can be quickly resolved by following the steps:-

  1. Open Task Manager
  2. Go to “Details” tab and look for “SearchUI.exe” under the “Name” column
  3. End this task by clicking on “End Task”.
  4. Now click on File >> Run New Task and type “searchUI.exe” and hit enter.
  5. The search should be working and you can test it out by pressing the “Windows” button and typing “mspaint” as search query and we should see the “msPaint App” in the results.

Good Luck.
