(Figure) What’s new and useful about Windows Search: Screenshot-searchable content

When we do a search in a Windows 10 system, most of the time we just want to look for a document or picture stored locally, rather than getting content from the web. But Microsoft continues to optimize the search experience, providing us with a practical search feature that combines the desktop and the Internet. This feature allows us to take screenshots of the desktop and then search the network for relevant content.

As the following motion shows, if you want to know something in a picture while using your PC, just click the Screenshot tool in the lower right corner of Windows Search to trim a specific area and search the network for relevant content. This is useful for images embedded in PDF files and can even help you search for images in your app and other non-network resources. It’s worth noting, however, that Image Search opens Bing Image Search in Edge instead of the default browser.
