Microsoft Appears To Be Testing Search With Screenshots Functionality In Windows 10

Microsoft revamped the search experience with the release of Windows 10 May 2019 Update. The Redmond giant has made various changes to Windows 10 search bar. Now the company is experimenting with the ability to search with a screenshot. The change is already enabled for some Windows 10 users from the server-side.

The new search function allows you to initiate a search with the help of a screenshot. You can use the new Windows 10 Snip & Sketch app for Windows 10 to grab a screenshot.

  2. As soon as you click on the button, the Capture app will open on your screen. It will allow you to crop the screenshot.
  3. Your system will automatically upload the screenshot to start the search in the Bing search engine.

Floating Search interface With Rounded Corners

Microsoft was previously testing the floating search with rounded corners in Windows 10. The tech giant separated search and Cortana in the taskbar. A new Top Apps section is available in the Search flyout. This section has a search box at the bottom of the screen and all the frequently used applications at the top.

Microsoft is currently experimenting with the aforementioned features and the company is currently in a process to revamp the existing UI. It seems like you might need to wait for some time to get these features on your production devices.

Some Windows 10 users confirmed that Microsoft has enabled the Search with a screenshot functionality from the server-side for them.
