Microsoft Store will soon get search for the Library

Microsoft is testing a UI improvement for the Library in the Store app. The entry point of your purchases and favorite apps will soon allow you to find the needed one thanks to the search box addition.

Microsoft Store users know that the arrangement options of the Library list is pretty limited. While you can sort the apps by name and/or date, you had to use the global search to find this or that app. There was no search option for the software you "own". But this has changed.

As spotted by the famous PhantomOfEarth researcher, one of the new features of the upcoming Store app is a small search bar located next to the sort option button. Typing app's name or its portion will bring it directly to you fingertips. So from there you can open, uninstall, reinstall, update it, or do any other available action.

The change is part of the upcoming Store version 22406.1401.1.0. Microsoft is yet to announce it officially.
