When I need to find something in the 'Settings' section, I use the 'Finder' app. As soon as I start typing it gives me suggestions of apps having the same letter/letters (e. g. if I type 'k', 'Clock' and 'Outlook' appear because these installed apps contain 'k' in their titles). I don't think it had this feature an hour ago. Maybe I switched something on/off. Is it supposed to be this way? ('Settings' is the only app to search in, all the other 'Finder' settings are switched off).
Thank you for your reply, I appreciate that. Please be aware that I've been using Windows Phone for almost 6 years, my Android transition is in progress at the moment.
if you search inside the settings app it doesn't show apps only settings. whilst searching on the app drawer naturally finds apps.
There's another search bar we can access at the Home screen (if we fully unfold the Status bar from the top, the Search bar button is right next to the Power button). Is it the same thing we have on the App drawer? (I think it is, it works the same.)
to clarify "S finder" no longer exist on newer software hence the post is confusing me a bit.
If we look at the Search bar there's three dot button on the right, it gives access to 'Finder' settings. I switched off all three toggles there (Show suggested apps, Show search suggestions, Show suggested settings). You can also decide which apps it can search in and show results from. I left just one which is 'Settings'. I thought it would eliminate any app search (I don't use dozens of apps, so I don't really need it), but eventually it didn't. It could be I was just too busy on the keyboard so I missed the initial 'App output' following the first letter being typed in the Search bar.
Any news on the topic? 🙂
