Windows 7: Default Search Bar

The search bar in Windows 7 is one of the best features right off the bat, it allows you to both search for programs, documents and any files on your system, but also acts as your “start -> run” bar did on Windows Vista, XP or 2000.

So you can just click on your search bar and type:
regedit.exe

and your registry editor will open,

Or type iTunes and it will show you all programs, files and folders that match or are associated with that “name”.

search_run

It is also lightning fast at showing results matching what you are looking for.

With Windows 7 default search bar built right into the Windows button, there is almost no need to use or install Google Desktop or other 3rd party search programs for basic search needs.
