Microsoft has started rolling a new Windows Search experience to Windows 10 users running the version 1809 of the OS or newer. The new experience features a two-column layout that offers enhanced readability and faster access to Quick Searches for users who like to see local weather, top news, and more helpful info on their desktop. However, it will still be possible to type directly in the search bar for finding other web results or navigating directly to a website.
The new Windows Search experience is a server-side change, and it will be available in markets where Quick Searches are supported, and the list includes the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and the UK. Moreover, Microsoft announced today that Windows search now provides web search support for Dutch speakers in the Netherlands who set their Windows region set to “Netherlands,” and set Dutch as their default language.
In addition to this new Windows Search experience, Microsoft also announced today the release of a new Windows 10 Insider build which brings more minor changes for the Settings app. We invite you to check our separate post for more details.
