    Yeah, I was supposed to edit that post but got pulled away..

    Basically I want it for aesthetics and laziness reasons. I can go to windows store but I really just want it on the search charm. I want to go to the metro screen/search and type "weather" and get options from Windows Store. If Im not mistaken I've seen that happen on an MVA video I was watching recently.

    I'll just check out the standard apps that comes with the normal 8 installs and stop being lazy.

    Thanks for the help.
    That link I posted earlier has to do with the desktop search also searching the Internet. Search Online with Bing - Turn On or Off in Windows 8.1 There is an option to turn it off during the Install, I do. Have a look at the settings, your fix may be as easy as turning a few things back on.
    Yeah I already followed the link and it gets me close so that I get other results rather than only local results but I still never get to Windows Store results via the search charm. Am I just mistaken about this?

    I don't know, I have the Bing search function disabled. I just open the Windows Store and search from there when I'm actually looking for an App. I would think you'd get adds for Apss, that if you clicked on and followed would lead you to the Store.

    You're probably right and Im probably just being unreasonable I just didn't want to have to go to Windows Store and search. I'll probably just bite the bullet and use the store or when I stop being lazy about it I'll go crazy and compare the apps between the two.
