Windows 10: Win10 Photos App - How to Search?

    Win10 Photos App - How to Search?

    I am seriously thinking of using MS's Photo App as the backbone of my new photo library effort. I've read that there is a new Photo App available and that is does facial recognition, which is a big deal for me.

    So, on my Win10 machine, I opened the Photos app and pointed it to a folder that has a couple dozen pics in it just to see what it's like. It looks great, but I can't find a way to search anything, and there's no obvious way to tag people to enable any potential facial recognition to support people searches.

    So, since I just read about a new Photo App release, I went to the Windows Store to download it. The Store says that the app (which I assume is the latest) is already installed on my machine.

    So I am really at a loss. I would love to use this app as the central point of my new library. What am I missing here?

    I don't see a search option in the Photos App. I find it useful for quickly viewing photos. You probably need better software if you have many photos to search/index. Many photographers use Adobe Lightroom for serious photo indexing and editing.

    Thanks Steve.

    The "New" Photos app recently released has search, facial recognition and lots of new features. I have the latest version, and it does not provide any of the new features.
