It seems Microsoft is getting ready to return to that well, with a new hidden feature uncovered in the latest build of Windows 10 H1 Build 18932.

According to regular Windows hacker Albacore, that build has a feature which enables a Bing search box on the Home screen.

The feature can be enabled using a tool such as Mach2, though its use case appears rather unclear.
