    Two search options?


    Why does Windows 10 TP has two separate and similar search functions, one on the Start Menu, and the another on the Taskbar?
    The only difference is the latter one having web suggestions, which could be added to the Start Menu search!

    Thank you

    :)

  2. How do I install Windows 10 on a flash drive onto a new hard drive?

    I need a very simple, step-by-step instructions. Seriously, SIMPLE! So far I cannot find any adequate explanation or detailed steps on how to do it.

    I built a new computer.

    I have a flash drive.

    I have a windows 10 code.

    I do not have the disk, I just have the code.

    The hard drive is brand new.

    The motherboard is a LGA1150.

    All I see on this website is how to upgrade, how to upgrade, how to upgrade, buy a computer with Windows 10, and nothing about entering a product key, installing the OS to a flash drive, and on to a new hard drive.

    I do not understand why Microsoft has to make this complicated. There should be a box that says: enter product key. Then it should route you to a page asking you how you would like to install it. Then once you answer (flash drive in this case) instructions
    are shown to guide you onto how to install it with the install button on the page. It should say in simple text: This is for new hard drives. Very simple. Seriously Microsoft! do this.

    Two search options?

    The new one on the taskbar is somehow going to be tied to the 'Cortana' thing when it gets up and running.

    Hi there

    Me too -- seemed a bit strange having what looked like identical search functions.

    Maybe I'm being old fashioned here - but if I'm looking for something on my PC I'd like to be able to restrict the search to say Local PC or LAN - especially if I have a shedload of HDD's or storage spaces connected. I know I can use File explorer / Windows explorer but it would be good to do it from the start menu since that comes up on the desktop already.

    Cheers

    Two search options?

    when you right click on the start button you also get a search option and this one takes you to what to me looks like the one to use ,looks like the old win8.1 charms bar search
