Hi all

I've been searching around but can't seem to find anything.

I have a triple monitor setup and everything is Ok with the start menu (left aligned), except if I try to select the search box on any monitor other than the one designated as my main, the start menu closes.

On my main monitor, it's working without issue.

Has anyone else had this?

Thanks in advance

I can confirm such behavior. On my main PC it behaves exactly the same way. First it was freezing all start menus after trying to search something opn second monitor. I reinstalled NVidia drivers from scratch and then ot doesn;t freeze start menu anymore, but search text cannot be entered into second monitor start menu.

On my work Dell notebook there is no problem with both start menus search. This notebook has bith NVidia and Intel GPU.

On my son's PC both start menus work fine.

Works in the insider dev branch so I expect it will eventually get fixed in the public release.

I've just updated NVidia drivers to 496.13 and start menu works fine on second monitor. It seems that KB5006674 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Build 22000.258 - Oct. 12 hasn't been detected by my WIndows yet, so it seems NVidia update helped.

EDIT: After restart second monitor start doesn't work.
After KB5006674 installation start menu search stopped working on both monitors. Going back with acronis image.
