Why isn't there a Search button? It's actually disconcerting to simply hit the Enter key after I type in my search terms. It's like, "I'm hoping this will search, but I'm really not sure."
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
If you enter some dummy search in the box, you'll be presented with the search results page. There you will find a search button at your disposal.
I don't feel that this is much of an issue really. It is a UI/UX design decision that was made because pressing enter after entering a search query actually is intuitive IMO. I have a feeling that people would agree with me on that.
