show control panel
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:29:18 PM »
Is it possible to make the items from the control panel show up?

If it isn't would it be something that would be considered for a future update?

hi there alexp,

in the meantime, if you had added your system folder into F&RR's search list then you can simply type "cpl" & a list will prop up...
fyi, i restricted my search to 9 items...

Don't know if it will work (haven't tired it yet) but how about adding a small folder and include it in the search folders with shortcuts to the control panel items you are interested in?

you absolutely can do this yourself right now, just make a folder in your start menu and create shortcuts to the control panel items you are interested in.  but part of F+R appeal is out-of-the-box already set up to search common things, so i think its worth adding to the program.

I think this is the feature I miss the most at the moment (e.g. being able to type "System" to go and change the system properties (Control Panel > System), typing "Add or remove programs", ...), that is without having to create shortcuts to them in another folder first (like Colibri (http://colibri.leetspeak.org/) does). That would just be great :-)
