    Default Start Menu Search missing in windows 8

    Hello, everyone

    Coming here for some help because you guys have fixed all my problems in the past.

    Recently i have encountered some problems with my windows start menu search not operating.
    I am using windows 8 beta 64 bit and the OS is just 3 months old. After optimize my system i found the start menu search is missing in win 8 and i do not know how to cope with it.

    I have tried many ways to turn this back and with no luck. can anyone come up with some suggestions?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi there,

    Which version of Windows 8 are you using?

    If you are missing the list of recently opened programs follow these steps to ensure that the settings are correct for the Start Menu.

    1. Right click on the Start Button

    2. Click Properties

    3. In the Task Bar and Start Menu Properties window click “customize”

    4. Click on the “Use Default Settings” button

    5. Click “Ok”

    6. Click “Apply”

    7. Open a program or two and ensure that the icons for these programs are showing in the recently opened items.

    If this does not resolve your problem please let me know that.
