    Windows 8.1 store search redirecting to start.


    Hello,

    I seem to be having this issue return every reboot.

    When ever I type something (anything) into the store search, it instantly redirects to my start screen.

    /sfc scannow fixes the issue but literally it returns that same day for whatever reason & I have tried the troubleshooter, re-registering the store app & done this sfc scan about 3 times now and just getting bored of it.. Having to use the browser version of the store just sucks..

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, I'm still looking myself.

    Have you tried:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    in elevated command prompt ?

    Hello PNetwork:
    In the Charms Bar search field, above the search dialog box, set search to 'Everywhere' from the drop down menu. Give that a try.
