Microsoft is investigating issues with Start menu and Windows Desktop Search in latest Windows 10 1903 update

Microsoft released a new Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 version 1903 two days ago, and the new build 18362.356 (KB4515384) brought a fix for an issue causing high CPU usage from SearchUI.exe for a small number of users. Microsoft wasn’t aware of any known issues with the patch when it was released on Tuesday, but the company acknowledged this morning that some users are still encountering issues with Windows Search as well as the Start Menu after installing it.

“Microsoft has received reports that some users are having issues related to the Start menu and Windows Desktop Search,” the company explained this morning on the Windows Health Dashboard. “We are presently investigating and will provide an update when more information is available.”

It’s not clear yet if many users are affected by these issues, but we can’t say that Windows Search and the Start Menu seems to work as expected on our PCs running the build 18362.356. We’ll let you know once Microsoft shares more information about these bugs, but in the meantime let us know in the comments if you’re also having problems with this latest Patch Tuesday Update.
