    Hello Muiacir, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    After you get your search results, you can select (check) an item to open the application bar at the bottom. From there you can select what you would like to do. Selecting Open file location, will open File Explorer to the file's location on the desktop where you can also drag and drop OR create a shortcut to the desktop if you like.

    FYI, the "Charms bar" is the bar on the right, not the start screen.
