Project Summary

Rather than being at the bottom of the Start menu as in Windows 7, in Windows 10 search now has its own bar on the taskbar. Cortana can search your PC and the web from the taskbar to find help, apps, files, and settings.

What Was the Problem?

We were adding more features to Windows 10 search during that time and needed to solve some complex problems in the small area of search.

What I Did?

As a user experience and interaction designer I was responsible to design lots of ideas for making Windows 10 search more engaging and easier to use for desktop users.

Who Did I Work With?

In this project I was user experience designer and worked with our product manager, developers and researches. We had design reviews with other design team members during this project as well.
