8 Ways to Search on Windows 8: Start and Search Charm

Windows 8 is here and we couldn’t be more excited.

In fact we’re so excited, we’re kicking off a series in which we’ll showcase 8 ways to use Bing on Windows 8. Check back here on Wednesdays and Thursdays, to see how we’ve reimagined search to be fast, fluid and built for touch.

To “start” things off, check out how search is baked right into Windows 8. From the start screen simply start typing to quickly search across apps and all of your files on your device. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, justclick the search charm to launch a Bing web search.


Tap, type, swipe and search. It’s as easy as that with the new Windows 8.

We have our favorite search tricks in Windows 8, but if there are any areas that you would like to see us cover, please let us know in the comments or on Twitter (@Bing.)
