New Thing Two for Vista: Instant Search

Instant Search is integrated throughout Vista. You can type a file name, a keyword, or any text contained in a file and you will get quick, organized results for the search. instant Search begins as soon as you start typing in the search windwo so you only need to type as much text as necessary to find the information you're looking for. Instant Search displays programs, files, email, calendar entries, video, audio, news feeds etc.

The first place you'll find it is in the Start menu:

In the Control Panel, Instant Search helps you what you need to perform a particular task:

In addition, you will find Instant Search in the upper-right corner of every Explorer (for example, when you go to Documents, Computer, Music, etc.). Instant Search is context-sensitive so it will search for music when you're in Music and Pictures when you're in Pictures, all files, programs, etc when you're at the Start menu.
