Searching in Windows 8 is the most intuitive way to search
you’ve ever experienced. You simply begin to type and search
results appear. If you’ve used traditional search methods by
which you have to locate a search feature, click in a text box,
and then type, you will need to get used to this new approach.
Use Integrated Search
1 On the Start screen, begin typing a
word, such as windows.
2 Complete typing the term in the
search box that appears.
To clear the search box but stay on the Integrated
Search screen, click the X to the right of
the search box.
