Showing or Hiding the Desktop Searchbar

Once the Desktop Integration Package is installed on your computer, the Desktop Searchbar is automatically available in its minimized form at the top of the screen. You need to open it before you can start searching.

If you prefer, you can configure the DIP so that the Searchbar remains hidden by default (see To configure the Desktop Searchbar to be visible or hidden by default). You can easily display it again at any time.

Note: Hiding the Desktop Searchbar does not hide the Outlook Sidebar (see Showing or Hiding the Coveo Sidebar in Outlook). You can also close and restart the Desktop Searchbar application (see Closing and Starting the Desktop Searchbar).
