    How to Search Bing Online with a Screenshot from Search Box in Windows 10


    You can type what you're looking for in the search box (Win+S) on the taskbar. You'll get suggestions and answers to your questions, and search results from your PC (My stuff) and the Internet (Web).

    You can also search with a screenshot taken by the Snip and Sketch app from the search box in Windows 10 to automatically search for similar images online at Bing Visual Search in Microsoft Edge.

    This tutorial will show you how to search with a screenshot from the search box in Windows 10 for similar images online at Bing Visual Search in Microsoft Edge.



    Here's How:

    1 Open Search (Win+S).

    2 Click/tap on the Search with a screenshot button in the search box. (see screenshot below)

    Hello Steve,

    I don't remember the exact build this was available in, but it should be at least 20H2 version.

    Note that this may fail if EdgeDeflector is used.

    In my case Firefox was launched with a Bing address, but I saw
    The page isn’t redirecting properly

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    However, copying and pasting the URL to Edge succeeded:
