Microsoft finally acknowledges Windows 10 Search mess

Search in Windows 10

A server-side issue
broke Windows Search for users this morning, with the
search box showing no search results. The issue has been widely
reported by frustrated Windows 10 customers on social media and
Microsoft has finally acknowledged the reports.

On February 5, many users encountered the issue on PCs running
the November 2019 Update and May 2019 Update. Users reported
that they were unable to use the Windows Search that’s built
into the operating system because of the blank or black box.

Microsoft is rolling out a fix for Windows Search and the
problem has already been resolved for most users. In some
cases, you might need to restart your device once, twice or
even thrice to restore Windows Search functionality.

Windows Search down

In a statement, Microsoft said a “third-party networking fiber
provider” affected Windows Search, which means Windows Search
service was knocked offline on desktops by infrastructure
failure.

According to reports, Microsoft’s fibre provider has had
problems and it prevented Windows 10 search queries, including
the local results from showing up on consumers and enterprises
PCs.

The outage reveals the holes in cloud computing’s atmosphere
and Microsoft’s aggressive cloud approach. Microsoft is
apparently dependent on its partners for Windows Search’s
ability to operate and outages like this can prevent all search
results from showing up on desktops.

Microsoft is reviewing its network redundancy options to
prevent this problem from happening again.

Windows Search

Lately, Microsoft has been working to unify search experience
across Windows, Bing, and Office 365 products. Microsoft also
shipped Windows 10 November 2019 Update with unified Windows
Search experience and it
broke File Explorer for many users.

Microsoft’s efforts to supercharge the search box has many
advantages, but such problems are ruining the company’s
reputation.

Windows 10’s latest cumulative update is causing Blue
screen of death (BSOD), performance, sound, and internet issues
for some users.
