    Search on Store


    Is there a way to do a search on Win 8 Store to find a particular app? As an example, when I had the evaluation version of 8 there was an app to check airline flights. I would like to have it again but there are so many apps that I can't find it. So if anyone knows how to do a search, I'd appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks

    move mouse to right hand bottom corner of screen and bring up the charms menu on the right hand side, click the search icon, scroll down the list of icons to you find the one labeled store and click it, type your search into the box.

Since this thing is being foisted upon us, it really needs a 'search' feature. It's worse than trying to find a 'gadget' for Vista/Seven.
