  1. Toggle off search suggestions

    When searching for a term, the Web search suggestions take too much space on the screen. With the keyboard open it's hard to see the other search suggestions (People, files, settings etc).
    I end up having to close the keyboard to select what I want.

    In fact I didn't even know about things like the settings suggestions because of this UX issue. It would be nice to turn off the Web search suggestions.

  2. Swiping left and right switch between the Web and Device search tabs

    When you trigger search by clicking searchbar in the home screen, you have to click the tab if you want to switch to Device or Web search view. It would be much better for usability if we can just swipe to toggle between Web and Device search.

  4. Open the first app in search after hitting enter

    When we use the search function, hitting enter on keyboard should open the first app shown in search results. Currently its opens the first search result in browser. There is no setting to change that.

  5. search default web

    When searching from the search bar, each time you perform it, the Web tab is the active search. If you want to search on your device you have to choose the Device tab and then enter your search. It would be great if the search bar would either remember you chose Device last time OR (better) if there was an option to default it to Device.

  6. When searching from home screen, app search in particular should be more "fuzzy", i.e. use wildcards

    When searching from home screen, app search in particular should be more "fuzzy", i.e. use wildcards. I have a gesture for searching, single finger pull down from home screen. Example: when I do that, search bar comes up, then I type "todo". No results. I clear it out and type "Mic", and Microsoft ToDo appears in Apps list. I would like it to appear when I type "todo".

  7. Move search suggestions down

    Search suggestions would be less annoying if they were below the apps that appear when you search. Most of the time when I search I just want an app. I start to tap the app, but as I do it's replaced by the suggestions, and I tap one of them instead.

  9. Results found

    Integrate the results found into the interface instead of it popping up in a bubble that lingers for just too long each time I search.

  11. get rid of that horrible microphone ui of the water on the bottom of the screen

    When you press the microphone the whole screen changes to show some water on the bottom of the screen that responds to your voice. It's horrible and slow. Please get rid of it and replace it with a small non obtrusive popup.

  17. an app that can monitor links on websites to confirm its identity and close all other malicious pathways immediately

    if a network is hijacked a hacker can replicate it modify and control the sites you visit. if any links or suspicious matters with the site can be detected before its opened it can save a lot of hell for a lot of people

  20. search pulldown should be more thorough with settings

    Currently, the search pulldown only lists major sections of device settings like Display, Security, etc. I believe that it should provide more thorough search through settings if possible. i.e. to get to navigation settings or something else that's beyond that first level.
