All this week, we’ve been exploring the new look for the search box in the latest version of Windows 10.
Next, we’ll explore Settings. To open, click in the search box.
The search box will open.
At the top right, click the three-dot menu icon. Choose Search Settings.
Select Permissions & History.
Your first option is whether or not you want to engage Safe Search. By default, it’s set to Moderate. Moderate will filter out adult images and video but not text. Switch to Strict and Windows won’t automatically load results with adult content. Turn it off and you’ll get whatever turns up.
Your next option is to decide if you want your computer to include content from OneDrive, Outlook online, and other cloud services you use. You can also decide if you want to search your personal or work or school accounts from the computer you’re using.
Finally, you can decide if you want to store your search history on the device and allow Windows 10 to use it when bringing up search results. You can also clear the device search history from here.
Tomorrow, we’ll finish up our look at Windows search settings.
