Is there a way to add windows search to start menu, like windows Vista have, just click and start typing to search your programs , files and emails.

I don't want to add any additional utilities except the Windows Search that I have installed.

Currently the Windows Search bar sits on the Taskbar, but it will be more convenient for me if I can integrate it some how to the start menu (like Vista does) but again without installing any additional softwares.

Can this be done?

Naman Jandial, not positive what you desire. Want it to show up on the start button or want it to automatically run. To put it on the 'Start' button, simply drag/drop the icon there and it'll appear.
On the other hand, if you'd like it to run by itself each time simply add it to 'startup' in your control panel, Start>settings>control panel.

To bring up Windows Search, you could do

Windows Logo key + F key

Then I do the Down Arrow twice,
then do Enter key.
