How to use Beauty Search to beautify Windows 10's search feature

Windows Search is one of the premium features of Windows 10, it allows you to search for files on your computer or find information through the web (using Bing tool).

Although it works well, the overall look of Windows Search has remained largely unchanged since its launch. It doesn’t even have a dark background mode.

Recently, Microsoft announced that users will soon be able to use Windows Search in the dark background by customizing in Settings => Personalization. Adding a dark mode is a welcome improvement, but not enough for those who want to further customize the look and feel of Windows Search.

Since Windows Search is based on Microsoft’s web technology, it can be changed by adding a custom JavaScript file. But if you’re not technically savvy, you can use a free tool called “Beauty Search” to customize Windows Search on Windows 10.


By default, Windows 10 lets you apply accent colors to the Start menu, Action Center, and the taskbar. But you cannot apply accent colors to the Windows Search search results window. With Beauty Search, you can force Windows Search to respect the accent color of the system.

Besides, Beauty Search also allows you to activate the dark background in the search results window.

Other features:

  • Removes the background color of UWP app icons
  • Add watermarks to context menus
  • Rounded corner context menu
  • Add an acrylic effect to the context menu
  • Removes outlines around borders when you navigate with the mouse
