I have set "settings > interface > extra results hotkey" for CTRL + # (where # is a digit) to "launch and stay open". Likewise CTRL + left click launches a the clicked match and keeps FARR open. I want the same functionality for CTRL + enter/return. I use enter/return all the time to launch the first match. Every now and then I want to launch that first match, or use the navkeys to move down the list of matches, and keep FARR open without using the digit keys. I prefer CTRL + enter since my hands always find those keys without looking. Not so for the digit keys. Maybe others with similarly wired hands will appreciate this feature too. ;D

If this is already possible please help he set that up. :tellme: Otherwise, consider this a feature request.

Interesting question. I think it has to do with the time. Past midnight, mouser is softer (he just snacked -- at 11h55 pm, approximately ; and he's having a chamomile herbal tea as his last 6pm-ish coffee effect is fading ). That's when you have to post your special requests. Try to avoid the end of the afternoon. He's grumpy then.

Sure :

mouser, would it be possible for you to not forget about the future ResultFromFile command ?  :Thmbsup:
