I'm not sure if a shortcode works in the menu, but a PHP tag, or an i call (as for Font Awesome) will work. You're free to try it.
Just go to Dashboard > Appearance > Menus and create a new Custom Link. In the link field, try placing # (which defaults as nothing) and add your shortcode in the Label field. That should make the call from the shortcode display the search. Save it. If it doesn't work, try it with the shortcode in the link field and skip the #.
Save the menu item. Save the menu. And inspect it. Let us know.Go to the full post
