Windows Central Question

Hi,

I have Win 10 Pro 21H1 29/4/22 OS Build 19043.1706 Win Feature pack 120.2212.4170.0

On a Dell T7500 Workstation.

When I try to add text to the Explorer Search box, I am unable. There is no reaction at all, the cursor is there though.

The search facility itself does work . If I paste or use a previous search still in the dropdown, it does go look but won't allow if I use the KB to add text.

Any suggestions please?

Hoping your problem will be solved...

I tried that and many other things such as the 3 youtube Registry changes but it didn't chnage.

It does work however in Safe Mode.

So where to now?

Thanks
