Search preview pane
If you search using Cortana (or the Taskbar’s search bar), you’ll notice the search window is now a lot wider when opened. That’s because it now includes a preview window. Start typing your search terms and it’ll display one of two things depending on which item is selected as the best match.
If it’s a program, file or system setting, you’ll see a series of options, from clicking Open and accessing a list of recently opened files for programs to opening a file’s parent folder.
If the best match is a web search, you’ll see a list of Bing search results. These are taken from the first page of the Bing search engine, so may include an extended preview of the first result, related information, and options to search by image or video instead. Click a link to open the result in Microsoft Edge or click ‘See all web results’ to open the search page in Edge instead.
One final tip: you can switch the preview to another item in the list by clicking > next to the item.
Cortana now offers a preview for each search result, to help you quickly find what you’re looking for.
