Search Windows and the web from Taskbar for help, apps, files, settings, and more. You can also get quick answers from the web - like weather, stock prices, currency conversions, etc. - and access the website faster using the links in the preview panel. Microsoft separates the Search and Cortana user interfaces Starting with Windows 10 build 18305.1003, Microsoft separated the Search and Cortana user interfaces, by providing them with individual buttons and files on the Taskbar. Separate Search and Cortana features are currently only available to certain Windows Insider users, using A / B testing. If already included in this A / B testing you can choose to hide or show separate Search and Cortana buttons on the taskbar right now.
