There are so many questions we have in our minds and these sometimes pop up in the middle of a task. Looking for answers online is easy but it usually takes time to open a browser when we are in a different application.
For example, you are working on an essay and disrupting your train of thoughts will only bring you back to square one. But, there is a fact that you want to verify. Opening a browser and waiting for it to load takes several seconds and soon will crash your thoughts.
Windows sees the problem and now offers an added feature that will eliminate the extra effort in searching online.

To search on a browser, go to the Windows search bar. Type in your text or URL. Then, wait for the search results list. You can look for music videos, stock prices, or weather forecasts. You can also type in the app you want to download.
The Bing Visual Search Feature
The new search bar feature integrates Bing’s browsing feature. You can make search more efficient and accurate thanks to its Visual Search feature. Instead of typing your text on the search bar, it allows you to paste images that you want to search. Some users find it hard to give precise description of what they are looking for. It is better using a screenshot of the image and the search bar will give you related results.
