The whole search ribbon is now gone... this used to be available as soon as one clicked in the search box

This is unbelievably stupid as it had great functionality

What possible reason to dismantle it 

OR is it now buried somewhere where no one can find/use it???????????????

Hello @Whatever8989

 

If you press [return/enter] after your search word, the search tools pop up and stay up until you close File Explorer.
