Where is the Help Search Bar in Illustrator that filters tools within the app?

When I upgraded to 2020 Illustrator, I no longer have the search bar that helps find commands or tools within the software.  It's not the Adobe Help/Adobe Stock search bar. 

 

For example, if I typed "circle", it would show a selection of tools below like Ellipse Tool, that I could click on as if it's the actual button.  

I've been searching Illustrator and the web and I can't find the answer.  Thanks for your help.

Are you sure you're not mistaking Illustrator with Photoshop?

Yes. I think you are right.  I confused it with Photoshop.

The latest version of Illustrator still provides a search bar in the Help menu, but it still does only search for menu items and application help topics.

 

Currently, there is no support for searching and activating tools.
