  • Hi Guo Hongji,

    Sorry I don't think its possible, lets say the SearchPane is more act like a Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.SearchBox, we cannot require the SearchBox search something out side the app: Enabling users to search for information in your Windows Store app.

    User can manually change to "Files" but its not below to the app scope.
