    Where is the search window?


    In Win 7 (and previous versions) when you opened the start menu there was a small search window at the bottom where you could enter your query. I have managed to place a search icon on the task bar right next to the start button...and I guess that will work, but that's not what I wanted.

    In Windows 10 the search window is invisible, in the way that all you need to do is open the start menu and start typing - this will open a window on the taskbar for editing but mostly typing a name of an app or the first few letters is all that's needed and an "enter" will have a good guess at what you wanted to do

    Edit

    On 1909 - the next version will open a half page search area with lots of options

    Actually, as UN-intuative as it seems, after cliking to open the Start Menu, just start typing. It will pop up. Try it.....
