To get Microsoft Edge tab search, Windows 10 Search Integration

Microsoft Edge’s tab search feature, which has been under development for some time, is finally making some progress. Apparently, Edge’s new feature is now one step closer to the official launch and it seems that Windows 10 Search Integration has also made progress.

Although Microsoft has not yet officially confirmed the development of chromium-based tab search functionality, the company has quietly enabled it for some users. For those who are unaware, the search for the upcoming tab of Microsoft Edge is based on the work that was previously done through Google for Chrome.

This feature has been in development for several months and was first seen in Microsoft Edge’s Canary Preview Builds in August. Initially, the Edge search tab feature required users to enable the experimental flag from the Edge: // flags menu or use the command line.

In the latest update, Microsoft has enabled the default feature, but only a few people are seeing the change. It is possible that Microsoft is still integrating A / B testing tab search with a small group of users.

Like Chrome’s Tab Search, Edge’s Tab Search supports keyboard Ctrl + Shift + on Windows and other platforms.

Edge already comes with a vertical that makes multitasking easier and search tabs should make it easier for users to find specific websites or tabs. Microsoft is also working on new features and improvements to the Chromium-based Edge to help increase users’ productivity.

Windows 10 Search Integration is now live in Edge.

Microsoft is also planning to integrate Chromium-based Edge with Windows Search APIs into the operating system. With a new update, Microsoft Edge Search History is now visible inside the search box in the Windows 10 taskbar.

According to Microsoft, the purpose of this new feature is to bring information from Microsoft Edge browser to Windows. If you use Windows 10’s search box, you can now use it to directly view previously open tabs in Microsoft Edge.

Presumably, future updates could enable deeper integration between Windows 10 and other browser features, such as bookmarks and recent tabs.

Microsoft has begun testing Windows Search Integration with some users running Edge Canary 88 and it is not yet clear how useful this new addition will be. It is possible that some will find this a distraction that fills their Windows search panel with results that they can easily find in Edge.

Fortunately, you can turn off search integration by going to Edge’s profile settings, as shown in the screenshot above.

Additionally, Microsoft seems to be working on a new and improved “Search on Page” tool with support for relevant searches.
