Unable to search files using Metro...Metro appears to be broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 8 was working great, but about a month ago my Metro stopped being able to search for files.  Pressing windows+F to search for files brings up the memories search.  And when I try to click files manually on the right, it selects it for a fraction of a second then deselects.  It appears that something is broken.

    I ran an sfc scan which didn't find any issues.  


    Any thoughts?

  • Turns out the Windows Search service had been disabled.  I think I had turned this off when setting up my SSD's.  Thanks for the help
