    (Edited) - okay I made one reply but actually I have to change it. If you say or type Google into the search in the window store and might just redirect to your desktop browser.

    Try defining your search with more words and then maybe the windows store will have results. You might want to check other searches make sure that you can search other names in there, if you can't then perhaps you were not connected to your Internet connection properly.
