Make sure search is enabled. Go to Control Panel>Programs and Features, and you will see Turn Windows Features on or off in the left pane.

Your screenshot above. Did you use the Snippet tool to get the "Search box" screenshot as I was trying to do this but couln't get the "Start Window" to stay open and get the Snippet to work at the same time. I was fiddling with Alt + Print Screen when you beat me to it. Didn't want to start another thread on such a small point.

Yes, he used the snipping tool, but he had to take the snip from a virtual machine.

That's the only way to take a screenshot including a menu, without using third-party tools.

Edit: let me clarify: he was running a virtual machine, and took a snip from his host OS.

Mitchell, the post is already deleted by mods (good so, I lost it a bit).

But to answer your question, I'm currently using a virtual machine to surf (read here why), so I just opened the start menu in virtual machine, and used host's Snipping Tool.

Another method is to make screenshot with PrintScreen button for as you mentioned, activating Snipping Tool closes the menus. Then paste the screenshot to Paint, select the area and click Crop and save it.

EDIT: Jonathan, I knew you'd figure it out!

Hi Kari
Thanks for that. Yes using Alt + Print screen is what I was doing. When you post disappeared I thought I was going dotty. I closed and opened the Forum half a dozen times till I realised that some of the Thread had been deleted. Well done whoever was responsible.
P.S. Dont' worry if I go dotty, my wife says nobody will notice anyway

P.P.S. I can't open your link, I do not have the necessary permissions (yet)

Start Search broken, doesn't return search.
I'm not really sure how to explain this and this is my first post so I think I will just show you, yeah, that's probably the best way. The best way I see to explain it is instead of a list of the files and programs found in the start search showing up it just shows a few files like Documents.file,...
