In September of this year, Microsoft tried to return the search field to the taskbar in the Insider build of Windows 11 Build 25197, but this feature was disabled in build 25201. Now this feature has reappeared, but already in build 22623.870 on the Beta channel.
Interestingly, the design of this element is different from the options that were present in build 25197, and the search itself is now functional. Since the change is still hidden from ordinary users, it can only be enabled using the ViveTool utility. To do this, we suggest using our instructions:
cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
vivetool /enable /id:40887771 /store:bothand press Enter.
Important! If the Start menu stops working after enabling the search field, then run the following command:
vivetool /disable /id:38937525 /store:both
If you want to disable the functions, then use the command:
vivetool /disable /id:40887771 /store:both
