I can't seem to find any search box in the store. Does it exist? How can I access it?


1 Answer 1


From this question on Microsoft Answers:

To [search] the Windows 8 Store, click the Store tile on the Start screen and then press Win+Q or touch swipe from the right edge to open charms, then use the Search charm to search for apps.

To clarify for people using a mouse:

  1. Open the Store
  2. Move your cursor to the top or bottom right corner
  3. Click the search icon
  4. Type your search
  • You can just open it to its main page, and start typing, as well, just like on the Start screen. Doesn't work on every page of the store, though.
