Hi, I installed the latest build of Musicbee on a friend's computer, but when she goes to search by any lyrics nothing pops up. Anyone know why that wouldn't work? It's totally fine when I use it on my computer.

Also I can't get rid of the top columns that say Artist, Song, and Genre. I can get rid of two but the third I can't remove. Any ideas?

Sorry and I should mention that when I search all fields, it WILL pull up lyrics.

Click on the down arrow next to the magnifying glass in search box.  Select 'search specific fields" then 'set search fields.'  Look in the left column for 'lyrics' and drag it to the right column.

If you're trying to eliminate -all- column headers, I don't think that can be done.  At least one must be present.  (I think.)
If you're just trying to get rid of the three you mentioned (and others will still exist) then right-click on one of the headers and select 'select displayed fields.'  Drag what you don't want from the right column to the left column.

Do you mean the column browser, genre/artist/album?  You can tune that off with the menu next to the search box.
