How to search for movies using the Netflix App


I saw this comment in the Netflix App review …


… and realized it isn’t immediately intuitive for people to figure out how to use the Search Charm and that it can be used for any application you choose.  So, I decided to document how to do that below.  I tried to see if I can contact brett directly but there isn’t a way to do that from the Review page.

Step 1) Run the Netflix App from the Start screen.


Step 2) Open the Charms bar and select Search

In the screenshot below, the Charms bar is on the far right of the screen.  The Search charm is the one that looks like a magnifying glass.


Step 3) Type a few words related to the movie you want to look for in the text box

I entered walking dead and pressed on the Return/Enter key on my keyboard.  The application will automatically find the movie.
