    How can I search my computer....is there a way on 10???


    When I had 8.1 on the right of my screen I could slide out a window that had a blue background and the first box was a search box. I could type in anything I wanted and it would search my computer for me . I Loved it!!!!!!

    There was settings, and power options I think.

    Now that I have Windows 10 that window and the options are gone....A black tab opens with ACTION CENTER. No search box. Is there any way I can get it back??????

    Thanks for any help.

    Are you using Windows 10 on a tablet or phone? If you're using the desktop, there should be a big search box right on the taskbar. You can search for files, apps, even stuff on the web.

    If you want more fine grained control, you can use the search in File Explorer (upper right corner)

    I'm not sure how you can miss it...
