(I could not resist that.)
I shorten the search terms in my posted examples to show you how quickly you can find what you are looking for in the Windows 8 Start Menu.
If you try using search on the Windows 8 Start Menu, you will find that all Windows 8 needs are the fewest unique characters to find what you are looking for. As soon as you start entering letters, search narrows its focus.
For example: If I am searching for MS Word,
1. "W" gives me 28 hits
2. "Wo" gives me 3 (Word, WordPad, SharePoint Workspace)
3. "Word" gives me two hits
I could stop at step 2 and just select Word. "Wo" + enter
So if you want to find an Adobe product, it seems obvious that you would start typing "Adobe". By the time you get to "Ado" all I will see on my screen are Adobe hits. Select the Adobe program you want and run it.
