Thank you but your suggestion(s) did not work.

My situation is this..All my Browsers (Edge, Edge Dev, Chrome, Firefox and others) when I input the word "garlic" into the search box, a list of choices is presented. When I enter the same thing in the Taskbar Serarch box, the response is "No results for garlic". In the past the search box did the same things as the browsera plus anything it found on my computer. IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN GET THIS FEATURE BACK?

I’m sorry to see that you marked my reply as not helpful. You stated you wished to reinstall Cortana & I gave you the solution for that, now you say it’s a search problem.
The web search box within Cortana has been moved to a separate app within the 1903 update.
You should have a magnifying glass icon next to the Cortana icon in the taskbar.
If the cmd didn’t work then try thus:
I recommend an in-place upgrade repair.
To repair Windows without losing any data then follow the instruction here:

This will also upgrade you to the latest version of Windows - currently 1903.
In a nutshell you just insert the Windows 10 media (USB/DVD) & run setup from within Windows.

Yes Mam I did not express myself well and did not mean to imply there was any problem with your response. I have received responses from people at this site occasionally and have always found the information correct (if not always helpful).I will reply again after trying your most recent suggestions.

I DO appreciate your help and again apologize for any misunderstanding.

Good morning/afternoon.

I wanted to let you know that I found the apparent cause of my search box problem.

Being old and obsessive I kept looking for something that might cause the problem.

I found what was causing it.

There is an optional App named "WMI SNMP Provider".

I installed this and my problem is ,at least for the moment, solved. I can only guess  that a recent update cause this feature to be removed.

Since you were indeed helpful, I just wanted you to know.

Thank you.
