Brave browser there is no search bar?

Just installed brave browse. There is no search bar? which is odd?

Is it possible to share a screenshot?
Also which OS and version are you using?

I added the icons to search.

It’s no big deal just annoying. When i first installed it was there. Then gone. It’s driving me nuts… LOL

Try going to the More tools and create a new profile…Sometimes that might work

Umm, sure there is? Especially as I’m looking at your screenshot. The whole address bar is the search bar.

Kind of curious what you’re referencing. For example, if you open a private window, it defaults to Brave Search. Is this what you’re looking for?

If so, then have to look at what you have for your Home Page and New Tab Page.

The screenshot you provide is for Appearance which has your Show home button enabled and you told it to go to your New Tab Page when you click on Home.

What we can’t see if what you have set for your New Tab Page, which would be a setting under Get started.

You can see that on your Home Button thing, you have Brave Search as an option. So most likely you were using that and then switched it up to New Tab Page instead. The one screenshot you shared, which shows trackers blocked and all, is the Dashboard, which people use if they want to see Sponsored Images and all for extra BAT through Rewards and/or so you can see things like Brave News or your Favorites/Top Sites.

OMG….your so right!! I am so wrong! THANK you…. I am good now! I can’t believe I was so dumb!

I got it now!

Again thank you
