Windows 10 Search bar

15 discussion posts
I just upgraded to Windows 10. Everything seems to work okay with DisplayFusion except one thing. I noticed that the search field that is normally next to the start button is missing from the taskbar.

I tried search the discussion for an answer and I saw that apparently there was no windows api for this functionality. However, the discussions I was looking at were over a year old. Therefore, I was wondering if any new information/a fix has been found? Or, a workaround of some sort?

DisplayFusion doesn't replicate the Cortana search box yet, sorry.

Click on the Start Flag on any screen and type your search query, it will come up on your main screen but it works.

Is this still how it is expected to behave? (latest version - 9.4.3).

I just tried clicking the start button on one of my secondary monitors (3 monitor setup) and it opens on the monitor as expected, but when I start typing, then the windows 10 search box shifts to my primary monitor and the search results are shown on that monitor instead of on the monitor where I clicked the start button.

This is still the expected behaviour unfortunately. We haven't found a way to fix this yet, sorry!
