    The start menu suggestions are okay,
    It's when you use the enter key (which in win-7) selects the top suggestion
    In win-10 it spins you to a bing search page :/

    Forum sections can be easily confused it's all good but please keep in mind help is always the main objective :)
    Otherwise I would've posted somewhere else less serious :)

    Allot of people do not like Bing Desktop Search because of this very bazar default in results,
    Not that I would want to use another search engine "Google or....) either start search is in my opinion always a Local files/ programs search,
    Otherwise I would open a browser and search and then I wouldn't want to search for local files,

    The only trick ie workaround seems to not use the enter key and click on the suggestions instead :/

    "The only trick ie workaround seems to not use the enter key and click on the suggestions instead :/"
    Aha, so that's why you were having problems and I wondered why, I never hit enter just clicked on the result. I just hit enter, and can see the problem.
    The main problem I can see is having the two search boxes so close, but apparently one is for Cortana.

    Once the suggestion is on top traditionally I would use the enter key which is my dilemma,


    I posted feedback to the start button section of the feedback app :/

    Possibly others could do the same ?
    It's sort of wild to tie a web search to the start button anyway it's why I've always avoided Bing desktop search in win-7
    My Bad for not mentioning the enter key it just occurred to me as what the issue was coming from :/
    search in general is everywhere or everything can't remember which but it should have a setting option to kill Bing completely as via my feedback was,
    Cheers for the helpful content :)

    There's a bunch of settings in Group Policy as well but most don't seem to apply themselves.
