    Clicking on search box used to open timeline - not anymore


    When i click on the windows search box (next to the start button) it opens up a box, but it does not display my latest documents, webpages etc. It only shows the most popular apps.
    It used to display a timeline with most recent items.
    I haven't actively disabled anything so i must asume that either something is broken or that this feature has been discontinued in v. 2004?

    :)
