    Hello everyone,

    Just got my new Lumia 950 XL few days. I won't expand it here but there are few things i enjoy, others that i don't but the most annoying for me is the lack of global search through the phone.

    When i hit the search button, Cortana pops up.

    So i want to search for a contact : i type Mike, all i got got is search Mike on the web

    I want to search for an appointment with M. Brand whicj i set up in Outlook Calendar as "Appointment with M. Brand" : i type Brand, nothing. i type appointment, still nothing

    I want to search for music which stand on my phone memory. I type the name of it, nothing

    Really ? Am I really bad at this or is Cortana unable to search through my phone for simple stuff ?

    Thank you all for your help :)

    That's one of the many things Microsoft chose to remove from Windows Phone. Just like the clean look Cortana had before they made it look like the mobile bing result site. -_- But it's not said that this rather important functionality won't return.

    Thank you for your reply. It is indeed a shame that such a standard feature is unavailable :(
