    On my Windows phone to search I just press the search button, on my Surface Pro I have a handy search icon on the Metro/Start screen, these are both very handy one click search options.

    On my Asus laptop running 8.1 this feature is missing (Also not available on my wife's Surface 2 or any other 8.1 PC laptop we have).

    I know I can press Windows key + S, I also know I can just click Bing, but I miss the simple 1 click option of the phone and Surface. I take it I haven't missed a single click search key on the laptops keyboard or any other single click search option ?

    if you want the search icon on start screen , you have to update your windows 8.1 to windows 8.1 update 1 (it also require mouse and keyboard ) , another way to search on windows is by just start typing anywhere on start screen
