Microsoft announced the release of new features, and improvements to its search engine, Microsoft Search, according to the company’s latest blog post.

The improvements will affect Microsoft Search on every platform, from Workplace Search to Microsoft Search in Windows and Edge address bar, Graph Connectors, and so on.

We’re excited to share highlights some of these improvements in the following areas: Workplace Search, Microsoft Search in Windows and the Edge address bar, Graph Connectors, and Search administration and analytics.


Among the new features, the Redmond-based tech introduced a rather very useful improvement to Microsoft Search. The ability to search for work-specific files, folders, and documents on Windows.

One would say that Copilot on Windows 11 is enough to carry out such a search, but it seems Microsoft has thought of every possible way to ease the process of searching files.

To quickly look up work documents using Microsoft Search, users will only need to go to the Windows 11 Search bar, and type in the name of a document.

A list of filters will appear, including the possibility to select the Work filter, as you can see in the image search windows

Windows will showcase all the work documents that contain the name previously typed in.

Another way to search for work documents is to go to the search bar, select the company’s logo, or the suitcase logo as you can see in the picture below, and then simply search for the documents you want to search windows

If the search is not accurate, Microsoft Search will display additional options that users can select from to filter the results even further.

As you can see in the image below, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from to maximize the chances of finding the right file.

Overall, Microsoft Search’s new improvements are important and needed especially for those who use the native Edge, as well, although it might not compare yet to Google Search, at least in popularity. The efforts from Microsoft to make Search a better tool are still laudable, and if we think about native search on Windows devices, then it’s more than a welcomed addition.

Copilot might be here but it will be a while until it replaces the good old classic way of searching for documents, and files.
