    Hey all,

    So, I installed windows 10 yesterday, first as an upgrade over 8.1 and later on did a clean install.

    At first the search was working fine, but now my apps won't show up in the search results. When typing it shows settings that I can open or files, but not actual apps that are present in my start menu.

    I don't have Cortana (living in Belgium). On top of the search screen it also keeps saying "Preparing search" (I translated it from dutch "Zoekfunctie voorbereiden...", so not sure what the actual english text is).

    I tried rebuilding my index, but that doesn't change anything.

    Anyone got an idea?

    Thank you in advance.

    I'm having the same issue. The little "Search Windows" bar next to the start button, when I type something in to search all I get is a white empty space, it won't search for anything. Help please.

    Just the same problem here. Also set my language to Dutch. I hardly can find anything about this problem...
