Dunno,  I might give it a go later but I'm in the pub at the minute.

Like I say it's not a problem, you can do things another way.

Are you able to right-click and paste something into the search box?

Nope it shows up but it's as if it doesn't really exist.
If you right click in it then you get the standard taskbar context menu, ctrl+v doesn't work for pasting into it either.

I wonder if rebuilding the search index would fix it. Search is so easily broken in Win10!

Maybe, might try that later.

Have you done a Dism Restore Health?

Not since the latest update, TBH the lack of search is not really bothering me at the moment so I'm not making any special efforts to restore it.
It was handy for launching regedit, device manager, etc. but there are always the old ways of doing that, just takes a few more clicks. (or I could simply put them on the taskbar).

PS. Search in file explorer is still working fine.

I'm so used to search getting broken that I just put a ton of shortcuts into a folder on the desktop, then that folder "kind of acts like an app launcher."

Dumb question-what is this "search box" you speak of? Windows explorer?

Although I was speaking about File Explorer there, normally when you talk about the 'searchbox' it means the white box on the taskbar in Windows (usually next to the Windows key) that you type into to search for things.

You can turn it off to save space on your taskbar.
In Windows 10 you don't really need it - you can simply click on the windows key and when the start menu pops up start typing the name of what you are looking for and the search will open.
It's easier to do than explain - click on the Windows symbol and start typing to see what I mean.
(That did stop working for some users in Windows 10 versions 1809 to 1903 but it's been fixed again in 1909).

The File Explorer searchbox is a slightly different thing that searches your file system for a particular filename.
For most purposes the taskbar/Start Menu search is better for most users and will (usually) find the same things.
(It's that "usually" that can some times make a difference.)
The search in File Explorer looks like this:
