Microsoft has significantly improved the built-in Mail app in Windows 10. But even with the improved version, some users report that they can’t receive emails or search results in the mail app disappear when clicked.
Not being able to see search results in the mail app when clicked can be a big problem. Therefore, we have prepared a few solutions that we hope will be enough to solve the problem of search results in the mail app disappearing when clicked.
Before proceeding to solve the problem, first, check if restarting your system and router will solve it. Sometimes the problem can be solved by restarting the system. So, let’s start with our guide.
Causes of search results disappearing in the Mail app when you click the mouse button
Search results in the Mail app may disappear when clicked if the Windows system or the Mail app on your system has not been updated to the latest version. The problem occurs when a user enters a search query in the Mail app and the Mail app displays search results, but as soon as the user clicks on the search result, the search results disappear one by one (sometimes the Mail app closes itself).
Before proceeding with solutions to fix the Mail app in Windows 10, check if restarting the system and router solves the problem. Some users report that using the Escape key, the Ctrl key, or the up/down arrows after displaying search results prevents mail from disappearing.
Here’s how to fix the problem of “Search Results in the Mail App Disappear when Clicked”
Update Windows and the Windows 10 Mail app to the latest version
Microsoft usually releases updates to account for ever-changing technological advances and to fix bugs it finds. Updating the system and Mail app to the latest version may solve the problem.

Change the mailbox synchronization settings
The search result may be due to a communication problem between your system and the mail server. If this is the case, change the mailbox synchronization settings that allow email to be downloaded to your device. To change the mailbox synchronization settings, follow the remaining steps.
