Windows 10: Search for settings entries in the normal search bar

    Search for settings entries in the normal search bar

    I just installed the latest preview build yesterday. And I noticed that some search functionality is now different. I want to be able to search for 'power options' right on the normal search bar. I can no longer do that. I need to first search for settings, open settings app and then search for 'power options' in the settings search area.

    Is there any way I can go back to having the normal search display those settings too?

    Yes, same issue on mine, 14295.

    For now, I use the old-fashioned way.................... right click at Start > Control Panel > View by : small icons > Power options
