Hi,

I am wondering if I can do this with FARR: start disk/folders search only after I type more than 2 characters.

I'd like to keep a list of 1-char or 2-char shortcuts for the most frequently used commands, and when I hit hotkey for FARR and start typing, the first 2 chars I type are only searched in that list (instead of disk), so I can have
c[Enter] to invoke cmd.exe
fx[Enter] to invoke Firefox.exe
and so on. Because the list is small, it should be much quicker to search through all my frequent commands ('a'-'z'+'0'-'9', there are 36x36 combinations)

When I type the 3rd char, or some special key (like a<tab>), the disk search is invoked, I don't mind it's slower now because I mean to search the disk/folders for commands (and I can always right click on any result and assign it to a 2-char shortcut).

Thanks!
