How to Fix Immersive Search UI on Windows 10 20H1

Windows 10 users often like to try new things on their PCs like Dark Themes, Immersive Search UI, and several other features. However, at times, we get bored with new customization and want to retrieve back the original settings. Many a time, we want to switch back just because of lacking functionalities. For example – After enabling the Immersive Search UI, you won’t be able to access the Start Menu effectively. 

On versions prior to Windows 10 20H1, users may modify a few key entries on the registry to get the floating ImmersiveSearch bar. Since Cortana is no longer an integral part of the Settings App on Windows 10 2004, this doesn’t support immersive search UI. Upgraded the existing OS to May 2020 Update with Immersive search entry enabled may cause some serious issue later on. If you are already experiencing trouble, follow the below guideline to properly fix this.
