Problem with Start Menu "Search programs and files"

Hello!

This is a major issue to me. I open the start menu, and I want to search something up. Nothing comes up.
When I press "See more results", it gives me a error message.

What do I do to solve this?

In the start Search type services and click Services in the resulting list.
Scroll down the list to find Windows Search and make sure it is started and set to Automatic.

Alright, i set it to automatic, it was set to delayed start.
Do I need to restart?

Sure, a restart never harms anything. You might try this as well, and make sure Indexing in enabled in Services too.

Index - Rebuild
