Something happened to my Windows 10 computer. When I type in the search box, on the left bottom of the screen, nothing at all happens. For example if I typed msconfig it would show up right away at the top, I did not have to press enter or anything else. I tried to do a system restore, but where is it? In Windows 7 I could get to it from several places I hope someone can help me.

 

OK I finally found the system restore. But I would have to go back quite a few days. I would rather be able to repair the search feature if that is at all possible.
