How to Use "Find in Start" for Apps in Windows 8.1


information   Information
The Find in Start option will allow you to quickly find an app on your Start screen when you are unable to see it for whatever reason. When you use Find in Start to find an app that has been pinned to Start, it will take you directly to the app on your Start screen with the app tile highlighted so you will now know where the app is located on your Start screen for next time.

This tutorial will show you how to use the Find in Start option to quickly find an app on your Start screen in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1.
