I recently watched a YouTube video by Clifford Pickett (hosted by B&H). In it, Clifford clicks on "Help" in the main menu and as well as the drop down list is also presented with a search box. He runs a Mac.
I run Windows 11 and do not see the search box when I click on "Help". My question is, is this a Mac only feature or something enabled, for example, via a plugin? Would sure be useful to have.

I believe that's a macOS feature, I see it in loads of programs.
