Windows 10 : Recently Search Box Show Black Screen

My Surface Pro 6 / Windows 10 on 5th & 6th of February

It happens around 5th of February, 2020 until now and I just found out that it also mentioned on another website, zdnet.

The solution is:

  1. Start Windows PowerShell, Run as Administrator
  2. Reinstall and re-register Cortana fixed it. Run the following in an elevated (thanks to commentor dfrazier603)
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach  {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register  "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

And it’s back to work!
