lnk pattern scoring
« on: August 07, 2008, 06:16:16 AM »
Why does FARR score .exe results 150 but .lnk results only 50? Am I wrong in assuming the majority of searches would be for shortcuts?

you can customize this in options, but you might have a point there..

just wondering, isn't the score for *.lnk is leveraged against the folder it usually resides (Desktop, Start Menu, etc) which Farr searches by default?
