How to Enable or Turn Off Search Highlights in Windows 11

In Windows 11, "Search Highlights" is a feature that enhances the search experience by highlighting matching search terms or keywords within search results. When you perform a search using the search bar in Windows 11, whether it's for files, apps, settings, or other content, the Search Highlights feature will visually indicate where the search terms appear within the search results.

This highlighting makes it easier for users to quickly identify relevant items within search results, especially when dealing with longer lists or when searching for specific information within documents or files. It provides a visual cue that helps users locate the information they are looking for more efficiently.

To enable or disable search highlights in Windows 11, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app by pressing the Windows key on your keyboard, then typing "Settings" and selecting it from the search results.
  2. In the Settings app, click on "Personalization."
  3. In the left sidebar, click on "Colors."
  4. Scroll down to the "More options" section.
  5. Toggle the switch next to "Search highlights" to turn it on or off according to your preference.
  6. Once you've made your selection, you can close the Settings app, and the changes will take effect immediately.
