A Less Disruptive Update

With 19H2, there is a refined experience for users when using the search box. When you search a keyword, search results are displayed from your local drive as well as your OneDrive account, unlike previous versions which only displayed files resident in the local drive.

It does not end there! You can as well right-click on any of the results to check out the file's location. Furthermore, you can also use the Classic Search by pressing the "ENTER" button on your keyboard.

Other Voice Assistants on the Lock Screen
