The Windows 10 Search interface available on the taskbar or the Start menu is a great tool, as it shows the results in your documents, media, people, applications, various Microsoft services and even on the web.

Integration with the web seems to have been missing for some time. On the one hand, it lacked proper integration with Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge browser. But that will change soon, as Microsoft has started testing a new feature for Edge that allows for deeper integration with Windows Search.

If you have Windows 10 version 2004 / 20H2 or later installed, Windows 10 Search will be able to extract information directly from Microsoft Edge, according to a report by Windows Latest.

This means, for example, that if you have certain tabs open in Microsoft Edge, you can see them in Windows Search. What’s more, even your bookmarks, browsing history and top sites will appear in Windows Search results.

There will also be an option to enable synchronization in Microsoft Edge, where if you have the browser installed on your mobile device (s), you will also be able to access your mobile browsing history.

This feature is currently available only to a small group of testers using Microsoft Edge Canary version 91.0.831.0. Regardless, it is not working at the moment.

According to the original post from Microsoft community of the user who discovered this feature, disabling it will remove Microsoft Edge data that is shared with Windows and also stop sharing new browsing data if you want to maintain your privacy.

As for other features that we hope for Windows Search, we could finally have a more consistent dark experience.

Currently, the search results are shown in a clear theme that may change as Microsoft is testing native dark mode support for Windows Search.

There is also the possibility to add weather and news widgets to the Windows Search layout.
