Windows 10 gets new refresh rate feature, Start Menu search tweaks

Windows 10 Search bar

Microsoft is rolling out a new Windows 10 update with
improvements for built-in display monitor settings and Windows
Search experience.

In the preview builds, Microsoft is testing a new feature that
will allow you to change the refresh rate of your display. The
feature is finally built right into Windows 10 and you don’t
have to use Nvidia or Intel’s Control Panel program to change
the refresh rate of your monitor.

This feature will begin rolling out to all Windows 10 devices
later this year. As shown in the screenshot below, you can
access refresh rate options from Settings > System >
Display > Advanced display settings.

Windows Search is getting better

Microsoft is finally rolling out some much-needed improvements
to Windows Search on devices running Windows 10 version 1903,
version 1909, version 2004, and 20H2.Windows Search bar

After the update, you will notice improvements to the ‘recent
list’ box that now shows the last four items and the box is
updated every time when you search for items. The ‘recent list’
box in Windows Search can now show URLs, files, settings, and
apps.

Microsoft is also introducing a new option “x” that lets you
remove individual items. The remove button shows when you hover
your mouse over individual items in this list.

If you don’t like the recent results feature, Microsoft is now
also allowing users to turn off the feature completely under
the Settings > Search > Permissions and History. By
default, the recent list will be hidden if you’ve not used
Windows Search before.

Microsoft will still use the Windows Search box to promote
Microsoft Edge, Skype, and other services, including a new
‘educational string’ that will remind you about Windows Search
capabilities.

The Windows Search update is rolling out to everyone and you
don’t have to join the Insider program to see these
improvements. Later this year,
Microsoft will also add dark mode to Windows Search results
to match your theme preference.

Note that if you have performance issues with Windows 10’s
built-in search experience, Microsoft recently introduced a new

Registry value that turns off Bing results to improve the
accuracy of local results.
