I recently heard from a reader who wasn’t sure where to find the search box in Windows 10.

Here’s what the typical display is in Windows 10. The search box is to the left, right next to the Start Menu button.

Here’s how to make it visible. Right- click a blank spot onĀ  the taskbar and choose Cortana from the menu.

Then select Show search box.

The search box should now be visible.
