Maybe there is a setting or I'm not doing it right?
Step one - press windows key
Step Two - type search term
Win7 - Top Results show in sections - Programs, Control Panel, Documents, Outlook, Files. The vast majority of the time what I want is there for me to click on
Win8 - I only get app results. The vast majority of the time I have to click settings or files to get the results I want
I am struggling to think why this would have changed given the increase in screen real estate available for displaying more, not less, results. I also would've thought that this was something a large number of users do multiple times per day.
So I hope it is just something I am missing.... because it is difficult to understand the reason for the change.
Windows logo key+Q Opens Search pane
Windows logo key+W Opens Settings Search app
Windows logo key+F Opens File Search app
Cool thanks, looks like I need to learn two additional shortcut keys where one used to do the same job.
Any idea why they made it more difficult to use? I'm assuming there is some rational explanation that escapes me.
With search and settings search I get live results as I type. For some reason the file search method requires me to press enter before I get results. Is there a method for getting live results? I don't want to have to type more than absolutely necessary... I use this many times per day.
