Hi,

I got a problem on Windows 11 and i can't type in search box. If i press any character in keyboard it works like hotkey to the apps pinned to start.

For example, Edge is pinned to start, so when i press E it will highlight the Edge App.

I have tried to end task and run explorer.exe, I also tried running ctfmon.exe and did not help. Same goes for Windows Search services.

What else can i do? Thank you in advance!

You should end the SearchUI process to stop Windows Search. Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete, and then select Task Manager. Now, select Details. In the Name column, right-click SearchUI.exe. Select End task. When prompted to end SearchUI.exe, select End process.

First try restarting Windows Explorer. Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager, under the Processes tab, scroll down and look for Windows Explorer, right-click on it and select Restart then check if the issue persists

Please make sure both the red marked services running properly under Task Manager .. also Windows Search is running properly in SERVICES.MSC
