Unfortunately a new problem has occurred in Outlook (since I installed the new Windows version May 2020 the problems are multiplying).
The search bar that was usually in the following position has disappeared (see image):

cerca_outlook.png

And instead it is now at the top of the Outlook window (see image):

I can't move it in any way but the biggest problem is that I can't use all the search fields I used before this problem anymore.
Can someone help me?
Thank you all!

That's by design and cannot be changed. And yes, there are few known issues with limited functionality, Microsoft is working on addressing those.

@FCatalano 

Microsoft made changes in Outlook Search which are for them logical somehow. Yet they forgot that people are using Outlook .... let me rephrase that: they ignored the fact that people are using Outlook. There have been a LOT of negative comments about this since April 2019 when this was announced. Even the Inside testers were negative yet Microsoft ignored it all and now there is a literary rain of complaints about it.
You can give your feedback of this change on https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/3904...  ... you will also see that you are not alone: on that page, but also here on this forum, there are many many complaints about this change.
