Coping with Windows 8 Start: Type-to-search

A major difference with Windows 8 is that results from type-to-search are visible only one category at a time, instead of showing the first three choices from each category, as is the case with Vista and Windows 7.

Triggering a search from within a Metro app by pressing Win-Q will automatically have the current app used as the context for the search.
