Move searchbar to title bar on Windows

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Not a real problem, but from a UI perspective, it is not clear where the search bar is located on the screen anywhere else than the home screen/dashboard:

Describe the solution you’d like
I think moving the search bar to be persistent in the title bar like it is done in Microsoft Office applications would resolve this issue.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
If moving the search bar into the title bar is difficult or even impossible, I would suggest not repeating the name of the object that is open in the search bar, but leaving it empty and visible like the search bar on the home screen/dashboard:

Additional context
I think this could be applicable to other OSes (at least for the Desktop version).

I like to see the object name there but maybe a magnifying glass to the left and then when you mouse over, you get a UI indication that that section is a search bar.

It took me a while to realise it was there (compulsive ctrl+s) but now I know, it’s very useful.

Moving to the window decoration would be good unless maximized. On Linux, maximizing removes the decoration.
