Search without the search box

The search box on the taskbar or small search icon is not required to start a search.

So in order to search for something just open the start menu and start typing the name of the program you are looking for straight away. The search UI will automatically appear with results you are looking for.

By adopting this method, you can save valuable space on the taskbar.

Easy way to search for apps with long names

If you want to open Internet Security using start menu what you will do is type the full name and then press enter. The same program can be opened by typing just K I S and then pressing enter.

To launch a program with long name, type the first letter of each word in the Start menu with a space between them. For instance, to open Snipping Tool, just type S T (no need to type with caps on).

Quickly navigate to apps you are looking for

For example if you want to see all the starting with the letter W, open start menu, click on All Apps and then click on a letter (refer to the picture below), and then click or tap the W letter to view all program that use “W” as the starting letter.
