Hi there

With windows 8 in the start screen I was able to search for something e.g. an app just by typing on the keyboard straight away. However since upgrading to 8.1 this doesn't seem to work anymore - I now have to actually go to the right hand side and reveal the search box, click in it, type etc.

Is anyone else having this problem. Have Microsoft disabled the automatic search? It was quite handy when wanting to quickly find a program so I'm confused why it would have been removed if it has.
