    When in an APP and > Charms, Search applies to within that APP. Example: > NEWS APP > Charms, in Search type Calgary, immediately shows all Calgary News items.

    When in an APP and > Charms > Settings, ALL menu items that show pertain to 'options' or 'controls' for that APP.

    When in an APP, everything in Charms is geared to that APP.
    AND, when in an APP, Win+I pops out ITS Charms Bar. This applies to Desktop, also.

    Those are two great tips which I discovered early on, however I wish there was an easier (or more obvious for the average user) way to search within an app and access the app options. Having them integrated that deeply within Windows but not the app itself is definitely confusing/overlooked by some people.

    Thanks, Mitchell. This is why I try to point out various things that may not be all that obvious to everyone all the time. Maybe not too obvious but is fairly easy in one sense... Charms (& Search & Settings) relates to each particular APP or to Desktop.

    Cheers,
