    Lightbulb Search made easy...

    Ok, so some may, already, know this... but, some may not, too.

    There is all sorts of discussion about Search, Search box, Search icon, navigating, open Start menu, using Run & cmd and in general basically finding or accessing things.

    Well in 8.1 it was sort of kewl how one could begin typing on Start or All Apps screens and Search would kick in after a couple of characters were typed. Now, is Windows 10... like to save time, clicks, effort & thought... hit the Win key & begin typing; not IN anywhere, per se... just simply hit the Win key & begin typing, that's it. EASY as pie!

    Actually, that's how 8.x behaves. Hit the Windows key and begin typing. Nothing new there.

    Quite aware of that, already. The mention was particularly in regard to Win10 & a fitting time to mention it as the is much discussion regarding 10 due to some thing specific to it. Was not suggested as being a new approach as of Win10, exclusively. And some people are not aware that it can be done like that in Win10.

    Well, I don't know what you know or don't know. What I know is that your post implied there was a difference in behavior in 10 vs. 8, when there is no such a difference. If you knew it, then your initial post doesn't show it.
