    Metro Store - needs a search feature


    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.

    It's already there. When in Store:

    1. Oen the Charms menu
    2. Select search
    3. Make sure Store is highlighted
    4. Enter your criteria.
