    Hi, here's how I'd do it from my shortcut in Classic Shell.

    All you need to do is find a similar shortcut..

    Hi Cliff S - that gives the circular icon for Cortana. I guess it depends which search Gelashvili actually wants....

    The one I illustrated is %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe -sta {C90FB8CA-3295-4462-A721-2935E83694BA}
    which opens the search flyout.

    I was thinking they just wanted the box, which can be Cortana, if she's turned on, or just plain old Windows Search.

    The Search "Everywhere" one doesn't work in the 14xxx Builds anymore.

    Hmm...

    Must admit I'd thought that icon represented original Windows search until I tried it!

    So.. here's how to get the explorer search shortcut (also icon as requested)... but I'd guess what was wanted was Cortana's circular icon as given by Cliff S.
