Windows 10 has been equipped with Microsoft a separate default search bar along with the latest and smartest feature of them called Windows Search, instead of the tiny search bar with the Start menu as on Windows 7.
It must be said that since getting acquainted with the usage of this new search engine, my work efficiency has increased dramatically.
You can find everything on your computer or on the Internet with Windows Search, from files, folders, applications, to the Internet through the Bing search engine, which the search bar on Windows 7 can never be done.
