To help you focus your search so that you can find just what
you’re looking for, Integrated Search provides more tools than
a traditional search feature. That’s because the search feature
reaches beyond Windows 8 and searches the Internet, too,
assuming you have an Internet connection. This feature lets you
search for items such as emails, contacts, photos, videos, games,
items in the Windows Store, files, installed apps, music, maps,
and even administrative tools and settings for Windows 8.
Search for Items
1 With Integrated Search open (see
one of the previous two tasks),
enter or complete your search
2 Click any category beneath the
search box, such as Files, Maps, or
Store, to narrow your search.
3 When the results appear, you can
click another category to get different
4 To open any of the results, just
click an item.
If your results are too detailed, click the Pan and
Zoom tool in the lower-right corner of the screen to
go to an alphabetical overview. Click one of the letters
to go to results that begin with that letter.
