- If your search bar isn't displaying correctly or is hidden, press and hold (or right-click) the taskbar and select Search > Show search box.
If the above doesn't work, try opening taskbar settings. Select Start > Settings > Personalization > Taskbar. If you have the Use small taskbar buttons toggle set to On, you will need to turn this Off to see the search box. Also, make sure the Taskbar location on screen is set to Bottom.
