Microsoft wants to make Windows 10 as easy to use as possible, and the company is now working on a new Cortana search layout that would enable easy search navigation. A leaked video has revealed the new Cortana search layout which now uses a window-sized floating search bar to show the search results.

With the new search interface, Microsoft is improving Cortana’s keyboard-based searching, allowing users to make use of the screen and get detailed search results. You can also activate Cortana floating search with Windows Key + S combination and results is same you’d find from Cortana search bar in the current taskbar on Windows 10.

While at this point this feature is part of the latest Insider build, the video shows how the digital assistant Cortana provides an easy search experience on Windows 10. This feature will be released soon and it will make Windows 10 search more like Apple.

Microsoft is also testing a new feature called ‘Follow Me’ where Cortana would provide guide navigation in Windows to new users. Microsoft uses a blue circle to guide users to find appropriate settings and it relies on visual prompts.

The new Cortana search layout is still in the early stage of development and before the public release of Windows 10 Redstone 4, Microsoft will add more new features to Cortana and improve the search interface.
