Why was the search charm crippled in 8.1

    General discussion

  • The way it worked in 8 was unique and smart. You could search for anything in any of the installed apps without opening them and finding the search field there. Now, the search in 8.1 is useless. It never finds anything (not even files, despite everything is indexed).

    Now I have to open every single app, find the search field or swipe the charm bar in. What kind of sick UX is that?

    So I wonder why the functionality was changed so drastically when the original concept worked flawless (for me)?

  • That was actually not a question, but a discussion.
