Learn how to turn off Windows 7’s natural language search feature.
Natural language search enables you to search for things using a more natural language.
For example: You could search for music by an artist by searching for “artist Marc Broussard” or you could search for e-mail from me (Brent) about Windows 7 by searching for “e-mail from Brent about Windows 7“.
