When you select the search box on the taskbar, Cortana will help you find things and get things done. Type what you're looking for, or select the microphone next to the search box if you'd rather say it. (Your PC needs to have a microphone for you to talk with Cortana.) Learn more about Cortana.
Cortana is only available in certain countries/regions, and some Cortana features might not be available everywhere. If Cortana isn't available, you can still use search.
Use the search box
Type what you're looking for in the search box on the taskbar. You'll get suggestions and answers to your questions, and search results from your PC and the web.
To find more results of a certain type, select the Find results in icon (above the search box) that matches your search target: apps, settings, documents, photos, web, and more.
