Take A Look At The New Search Experience In Windows 10 Technical Preview


In the recently released Windows 10 Technical Preview, we have got a new Start Menu experience which replaced the Start Screen experience for keyboard and mouse users. In Windows 8.1, when you search for items through Charms bar, you will be presented with search results which was optimized for touch. When you search for your favorite musical artist or song, you’ll see a visually rich results page that lets you play songs and watch videos with just one click. Bing Smart Search was built especially to help you get the most out of touch on your tablet or PC, and brings you great results from the web, your device, apps, and the cloud, all with one search.

Since there is not Start Screen in Windows 10 Technical Preview for keyboard and mouse users, what happened to the Search Experience? Microsoft has optimized it accordingly. When you type anything in the new Start Menu, in addition to the apps, program installed, files and setting, you will be suggested for web search too. See the image above which shows the same.


Another important addition related to search is the new Search app pinned next to Start button in the bottom. When you click it, you will be presented with Search Menu which displays Trending now and your recent searches as shown in the image above. When you type anything and press enter, a full search app opens which looks similar to Bing search results page on the web. See the image below.


When you closely notice the image above, you can see that it is not the wrapper of Bing web search results page. You now have Files, Settings, Apps, Web Images and Web Videos tabs.

As you expect, each of the above tab searches for the particular search term for results. If you search for Facebook for example, you will have results like the below.
