4 Windows 8 search feature- Windows App store and more

Ever get frustrated not finding the exact information you are looking for? Well that happened to me a couple days ago when trying to find a particular app in the Windows Store.

Having Windows 8 for the past six months or so has been a fun learning curve (alright so I’m a geek for techy stuff sometimes).  However, after noticing apps on my tablet didn’t include a search feature, well let’s just say it was a major inconvenience. After some Google searching to no avail, I discovered the solution and am here today to provide the answer in the form of this short video:

A couple things to note:
  • There are multiple ways to use this search feature and it can be used on other apps you’ve already installed.
  • I’m running Windows 8 on a Dell Latitude 10 tablet. It’s a tablet and PC combo (the best of both worlds).
  • I am not a tech expert by any means but would me more than happy to answer any questions in the comments below.
Do you run Windows 8? Love it? Hate it?
Do you try to find things out yourself if Mr. Google Fails you?
Would you like to see more Windows 8 quick tutorials?

P.S. I was not paid or perked from Microsoft, Dell or Google; I just like providing sources that  worked well for me.


  1. Ohhh I have computer envy! My windows 7 laptop died a few months ago so I'm using a really old xp laptop (talk about the stone age!) I've been dying to try windows 8 I LOVE new platforms!

    1. I know how you feel about the stone age, my desktop still runs xp. It wasn't a bad OS, but it's ancient that's for sure.

      It's too bad Windows 8 is getting bad reviews because it has some pretty amazing features. For anyone in the market, I'd totally recommend a tablet/desktop combo. It truly is the best of both worlds.

  2. Your video doesn't work anymore, says its 'private'... would love to be able to watch it!

    1. Thanks for pointing that out! Looks like some setting was flipped on all my videos. Should be all fixed now! Thanks again, you're an angel!
