Vista search changes inbound in SP1
The changes will be visible to those running Vista in a few places. The first of these places is in Vista’s start menu. Today there are buttons that say “see all results” or “search everywhere.” If a third party search engine is chosen, that engine will launch when the search everywhere button is clicked. The second place is in the command bar in windows within Vista’s explorer navigation system. As you start typing there in the search box, currently there is a dark blue bar with buttons that say “save search” and “search tools.” As part of the changes, there will be an added button that says “search everywhere” and links to the default search engine.
