For example if i create an alias with the name "test" and "http://www.donationcoder.com/" as the result if i type "te" and hit enter it was my understanding that FARR would automatically launch the result because there is only one result for the alias. Instead it completes the alias to "test" and hitting enter then will launch the site. Same thing happens with any of the nircmd aliases.

it is supposed to launch it when you hit enter if there is only one result. i'll look into it.

I am having the same issue. When I have one alias result I need to enter twice to launch it. These aliases do not have any arguments. They are straight web urls.

I believe this is fixed now in version 2.23.01.

Not sure if this counts as the same/similar kind of situation, but in v2.30.01, after I bring up FARR and type:

+cmd c:\p
[1]

and follow this with the press of the tab key, the text in the search edit box becomes:

C:\Program Files\

Note that the alias "+cmd" has disappeared...Is this the way it is supposed to work?


[1] In my local installation, cmd is a an alias for:

Command Prompt Here | cmd.exe /k cd /d "$$1"
