Instant Search

1. How to enable/disable instant search feature on your theme?

Instant search is the content of the search suggestions that drop down right below the search form. When Flash Search app is installed, it will add instant search functionality to your store. Using the search widget, visitors of your Shopify store can quickly search for products they want. If they find what they need quickly, the search functionality would help you convert more visitors into customers.

If you do not want to use that function, you can disable it by using the Enable instant search feature option.
