How to fix not able to search in Windows 11 Start Menu

There's currently an issue with the new Start Menu search bar that prevents it from being typed into. There are other ways to perform a search on Windows 11, but for anyone bringing this habit with them over from a previous OS it's a nuisance to change.

Microsoft has also acknowledged the problem, stating that opening the Run window will enable you to type into the search bar again.

  • Hit Win+R on your keyboard
  • When it appears you can close it as you don't actually need to type or run anything.
  • Simply opening and closing the program seems to resolve the search box issue.

It isn't clear when we can expect a patch to officially correct the bug, but given this is a rather funky workaround it's likely something more permanent is currently being worked on.
