    How do you Search on the Internet?


    Is there a way to "Search" the internet from the Start "charm" ribbon?

    I know that if you click win+f it brings up files, and so on, but I cannot figure out how to search online from there. Can it be done? If not, there should be a way (without having to go into the browser).

    Thanks in advance.

    Type whatever you want in the search box in the Charm bar, scroll down and select Internet Explorer.
