Okay, redsox1. You are obviously going to have to sort out your problems with using Search before you can do anything else. I am sure phillpower2 will help you with that when he is next online. I myself am going to be fully occupied with other problems for quite a time to come, so will have to leave you in his capable hands from now on. :)

 

If you do want to try something else in the meantime, have a go at No. 2 (Check Windows Search Service) in the following link: -

Hope you manage to sort all the problems out very soon.

 

Chris

 

EDIT After posting the above, I realised that in the absence of an icon for 'This PC' , you might try pressing the Windows key (see message #57) at the same time as the letter E. You might then be able to continue with the instructions in message #59

The notebooks desktop is the screen that you see once you boot into Windows, see example attachment.

It is important to only deal with one problem at a time so as to avoid confusion, the issue is also totally unrelated to IE so you will need to start a new thread on the Web Browsers and Email forum here

No all programs. I know it used to be there, but it's gone. There are a couple things there , Home, power and settings.

We need the requested screenshot as detailed above, we are looking to see what is showing on your task bar.

 

You appear to be having a bit of trouble with using Windows 10, you may wish to consider using a program such as Classic Shell as I do, makes Windows 10 look like Windows 7 and imo far easier to navigate.
