    Change Start button Search to Search WIndows only


    When I click the start button and start typing to search for something, I want it to search on my computer, not internet too. Can this be changed to do that?

    If I want to search the web I'll open Google.

    Which build are you using?

    In 10061 I find that if you start your search with "mystuff:" then it only searches locally.

    That works, thanks. I see I can also click on Search Mystuff after entering the search term but not as nice that way.
