Hey there BC, I recently got the Windows 10 upgrade and it came to my attention that sometimes my search function either does not work or takes ages to actually give me some sort of feedback. The loading animation is there but nothing is being outputted.

 

I tried to replicate this problem but it seems to happen randomly and it fixes itself after restarts. But it should not be there in the first place. Is there any way to fix this?

After the upgrade it take a while search to re-index and catch up

Look here for some info on this issue.

 

More help.

When you do a search if you don't click on "my stuff" it will start searching the internet not just your computer and if you have a slow connection it seriously slows down. If you don't turn off Cortana it uses lots of resources. Without a really good processor and a fast internet connection windows 10 drags.
