You can now search the Start menu to find programs, documents, pictures, music, and videos. You can also search among your e‑mail messages, saved instant messages, appointments, contacts, Internet favorites, and the history of webpages you've visited. If any of these webpages include the search term, they appear under a heading called "Favorites and History."
To search the Start menu, begin typing the first couple of letters of a word, name, or phrase in the Search box. As you type, the Start menu changes to show the best possible matches, with priority given to the programs you open most frequently. The more letters you type, the more the results narrow until there are only a couple of items left in the list.
You don't have to know the entire name of the program or other item you want to find to use Search. You can also look for a type of program. For example, if you don't know the name of your e‑mail program, you can try typing e‑mail to get the right result.
