The Windows search function, accessible from the taskbar or with the keyboard shortcut Win + S, has become a powerful tool in recent years. Windows 10’s built-in search uses Bing to get information from the internet, as well as apps, photos, emails, and more.
The Windows Search experience was last updated in the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. At that time, Cortana was separate from Windows Search. Microsoft has also introduced a separate tool called “Improved Indexing” to configure and customize the Windows 10 indexing process.

Microsoft recently confirmed that the dark theme is coming to Windows Search and that the new design is already rolling out to users through a server update.
Windows 10 Search also appears to benefit from a new responsive design that evolves from desktops to laptops and tablets. This will allow us to access the functions available at the bottom of the screen without scrolling.
For those of you who don’t know, Microsoft has always allowed users to resize the Windows search window. If your Windows search seems too big or too small, you can easily resize it by following these steps:
Open the Start menu. Move the mouse cursor over its edge to access the tip of the arrow. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse. Drag it until it’s on the right and Windows Search will also use the same size.
Additionally, Microsoft is rolling out another update for Windows 10 Search to enable a new feature called “Bing Picture of the Day”. This new section will replace “Quick Searches” in the Windows search interface.
For those who don’t know, Bing includes a collection of beautiful images curated by Microsoft. The images, which appear on the Bing home page, also arrive in Windows Search.
