How to search Windows 8 Apps
I’ve had my computer for almost two months and was unable to figure out how to search the Windows 8 store for apps.
Previously, I wasn’t looking for anything specific, so I didn’t worry about it too much and proceeded to go about my business.
Today, however, Mark asked if I knew how to search the Windows 8 store for apps and I decided to research it.
I was able to find two methods. They both start by going to the Windows 8 store main screen.
The options are to:
- Swipe from the right side of the screen to open the sidebar window. There will be a search bar at the top under a ‘Store’ heading. Type in your search string here; or
- Press the Windows 8 button + Q simultaneously. The same sidebar window will open.
