Find And Run Robot / Re: Possibility to chain searches?

Thank you for the hints. I will try both methods, an alias and also dragging the most used programs onto the toolbar. Still, if this is in the future possible to chain searches this would be quite helpful to use FARR for many tasks which are quite slow using Windows Explorer.

Find And Run Robot / Possibility to chain searches?
« on: August 11, 2017, 07:48 AM »
Hello,

after getting familiar with FARR I am impressed by its functionality and want to replace other search or launch software with it. One feature that I have not found yet is the possibility to chain searches.

As an example: I would like to edit the "todo.txt" file with "notepad2". Typing "no" and FARR finds "notepad2" as the first hit. Now I would like to open "todo.txt" using "notepad2". So for example by pressing TAB I get the full path to "notepad2.exe" but cannot search any further for the "todo.txt" file which is located in a different directory.

So ideally I am looking for something where you search the application, then press a key which stores the application and starts a second search for the command line that is feed to the application, then type the search for the file, then select and hit enter so that the app is called with the complete path to the file in the second search.

Is this feasible in FARR or already implemented and I am just overlooking something?

Alex
