Microsoft is working on a new 'power toy' to add to their recently revived app suite. This time is an app launcher, that combines search with extra features for users' convenience.
A new tool, to be named yet, is intended to take over the existing Win + R shortcut, providing a new Run command with extra options like quick search for apps, files, and docs. It will support extensions to get features like a calculator, dictionaries, and online search engines.
When it comes to the features of the upcoming app, macOS users may recall the Alfred software, and Linux users may refer to rofi.
Here is a concept created by Niels Laute which the devs team is about to follow:
It is not known yet when we will get our hands on the launcher app.
