Cortana or Windows Search Blank? Try This!

Posted by iamsupergeek on

A few months ago, my techs were getting tickets from users stating that their Windows Search wasn’t working anymore. No results would populate the Search Box when users typed.

There are a multitude of sites/blogs that give instructions on how to fix this, and almost all of them essentially said, “If the above steps didn’t work, reinstall Windows!” This isn’t always convenient, or even an option

What I found works like a charm and usually takes just a few minutes to perform.


Eat the Green Gummi Bears First

A few years ago when I still had my Costco membership, I would pick up these 5lb bags of gummi bears.  I let my membership lapse because I realized that I only went to Costco to get candy.  My girlfriend and I would snack away mindlessly on plentiful handfuls of small, delicious, fruit-flavored bears and then I noticed that she was picking out specific colors and putting others back into the bag.  I said, “Hey!  Eat what you grab, there’s no picking!”

“But I don’t like the green ones.”

“I’m not a big fan of them either, but it isn’t fair for you to only get the good ones.”

“Fine, I’ll throw the green ones out.”

“No!  There’s no need to throw bears out, eat the green ones first.”

“What?  Why?”
