Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to share a simple alias I've made called MultiSearch. Typing in "MultiSearch" followed by your desired into FARR will give you the option to access Google Search, Wikipedia, YouTube, Google Images, or the Meriam Webster dictionary under the same alias.

Overall it's just a hodge podge of different aliases that were already present in FARR. Instead of having to remember different aliases, I preferred type in a single alias that contained my most used search tools.

I tied the MultiSearch alias into two keyboard hotkeys. One hotkey automatically types "MultiSearch" into the FARR window for me without any additional text. The second hotkey will clip any highlighted text to the clipboard and then type Multisearch and the clipped text into FARR.

Enclosed are an image that shows how I configured the two hotkeys in the FARR config and a .rar containing all of the icons used for the alias. Just extract the .rar to FARR directory\AliasGroups\MyCustom\

cool, thanks for sharing omadeon.

i need to make it easier for people to share alias "packs" -- if you want to try making one, you could go to your alias directory and make a copy of the MyAliases.alias file and then rename it to like multisearch.alias and then edit out the items in their so that only the multisearch alias is there. then make a zip file of just that .alias file and the icon files.

i only mention it because its easier for people to just unpack an alias file and icon files instead of having to add and configure the alias themselves and then if you ever improve it they can just copy in the new multisearch.alias file, etc.  just an idea! thanks for sharing.
