Math expression in windows start menu (or search)

Nikolay Simeonov 1 Reputation point

Some time ago I was able to press the windows start button, type 22+18*3 and see a calculator showing 76. Not sure what and when happened, but I'm unable to do this anymore, now the start menu is trying to find some files on my local machine.

What should I do to bring this calculator back?
