    I was trying to search for one of my contacts from the start search but nothing came up. Are contacts stored in the people app indexed? I thought this would be working

    I went to the people app and again just typing the name does nothing. I have to click in the search box and then type.

    IMHO, Contacts on desktop is still a primitive app like Messages after they removed Messages everywhere >.<

    One of the things I used to love about Blackberry, universal search. Just start typing a contacts name and their info would appear on the home screen.

    this is pc I'm talking about though.

    If I press the windows key to bring up start and then start typing - I get results almost immediately on files, apps and folders - but not things like contacts or messages. So this can be an area for improvement, right?

    Absolutely. Universal search is about scouring your pc/smartphone for data (contact information, an email you sent to someone last week) as well as Google/Bing (weather, data, etc.). It's about making things convenient to find.
