    Change windows search box size in Windows 10 tool bar.


    The "Search the web and windows" is take up a lot of space on my tool bar. See image in attachment to see the box am talking about. I believe there is a way to minimize its size; but I don't know how. Please suggest possible solution towards the situation. Thanks.

    Hi salim, welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    Right click your taskbar and hover on Search/Cortana and choose one of the three options:

    Hi Edwin,
    I can't see the Cortana/Search option, the only option that's available is "Search", pls see attachment.

    It's named 'Search' until you sign in with an MS account and set it up, at which point the moniker changes to 'Cortana';
    anyway, you're there, just choose hidden, icon or box.
    BTW: you can hide it and still invoke a search by simply clicking the Start button and begin typing.
