Ok, its time to ask the stupid question.
I understand that FARR can do absolutely everything. I only want it to do the most basic function as "advertised".
I downloaded it, installed it, pressed the magic pop-up key, started to type in a program I wanted. As described, a list of numbered candidates showed up. I pressed the number corresponding to the one I wanted........... and it broke! Instead of launching the program, FARR treated the digit as just a continuation of the search term.
So I tried all the obvious things. Ctl-digit, Alt-digit, Fn-digit, you name it. Nothing.
Since I could scroll down to the various programs, I have been using that approach every since. It continues to bug me, however, that it refuses to work as described.
If I had modified it, extended it, or tweaked it in any way I would assume it was my fault. I didn't. All I tried to do was use it as the most basic plain vanilla, follow-the-instructions-and-it-will-work launcher program.
I'm certainly not going to tweak the program if I can't get it to work in out-of-the-box mode.
Whats the problem please?
