    On the Nova Launcher, I would like to disable the keyboard short press device search, but I cannot find any option to do that.

    Any ideas?

    U can't.

    Nova has no control over the keyboard.

    The only way is to completely disable search from within main phone settings but then the keyboard defaults to Google search.

    The odd thing is that at some point starting to type on the PKB invoked Nova's app search which I really liked.

    For some reason I can't find a way to bring that feature back! It's not even working in the app drawer anymore.

    I wonder what is wrong with my settings then! Can't find anywhere this search type is controlled.

    This enable Google search instead of the now disabled Device Search. I think OP is looking to disable any kind of search with the PKB.

    If you are still using Nova then you will probably need to disable your Google App in order to achieve this setup.

    You can actually disable both apps to not get a device-wide "universal search"...you instead get a slight "crash" hickup when both Google/Device search are disabled (at least in my experience using Microsoft Launcher).
