Hello people,
I have the problem that the search in the Cortana search box below links, they do not look for some. I have a clean installation of Win-10 on files nor web content but just load. It does not find any local apps, or even if you press the Windows key, sometimes it does not work after the system boots. Has systems here then works again.

Microsoft's language assistant usually uses the browser, which is also set as the default browser. Many PC users still rely on Google for searching the Internet, but they supply what is owed to the internal search routine.

Opinion of the author: Many users have to cuddle up with Feuerfuchs, but also to get along with the search engine of the competition. In the delivery state of Windows 10 this is the new edge browser, the tip Daniel! Bing is Microsoft's own search engine, with which, however, not everyone is considered by many users as complete. How you could treat the Mozilla Firefox to the standard browser, was already in this guidebook this search engine still the best and most of all hits can be found.

Yippie, thank you for not getting a bing search on Cortana's results. The feeling is that completely different results come to light, because the results differ significantly from Google. Cortana uses in their search as a standard Bing !, other search engines, FF thank!

Addiction, but via Google or another search engine that you praferiert but bothers many users sour, because Bing! I have Unbubble installed, which always delivers good results and is due to privacy ... Continue reading ...

Is there a program to pass to the active program, ie simulates the TAstendruck F11?
pity that many desktop programs are not optimized for tabs, for example, this program runs in the background. It's best to make a gesture with a keystroke, for example.
