    Two search options?


    Why does Windows 10 TP has two separate and similar search functions, one on the Start Menu, and the another on the Taskbar?
    The only difference is the latter one having web suggestions, which could be added to the Start Menu search!

    Thank you

    The new one on the taskbar is somehow going to be tied to the 'Cortana' thing when it gets up and running.

    Hi there

    Me too -- seemed a bit strange having what looked like identical search functions.

    Maybe I'm being old fashioned here - but if I'm looking for something on my PC I'd like to be able to restrict the search to say Local PC or LAN - especially if I have a shedload of HDD's or storage spaces connected. I know I can use File explorer / Windows explorer but it would be good to do it from the start menu since that comes up on the desktop already.

    Cheers

    when you right click on the start button you also get a search option and this one takes you to what to me looks like the one to use ,looks like the old win8.1 charms bar search
