Launch, stay open and continue searching
« on: February 21, 2012, 05:14:11 PM »
Hi Mouser,

The option ctrl+dlbclick to launch and stay open works really well.

A great functionality that could be added would be to continue the search after launching
(at the moment, if I am searching for some subject, the results are being populated, but, as soon as one file is launched the search stops... that is ok for normal launching.. but with the "launch and stay open" it would be much better if the search would continue...)

What do you think of this idea?

Have a great day!

Hehehhehehe, sure!

I hope you can find an easy solution :)
It can be really handy, especially when searching some network files!

Hi, Hi,

Hopefully you are managing a way on this :)

There is a small annoyance on this Ctrl dbl click because some applications will also detect the CTRL key for other purposes... ex: if I am launching a .docx word will prompt to open in safe mode, and if launching a .pdf acrobat will prompt for default language...

Maybe would be nice to include a checkbox near the search bar for this, for example... or have a different combination of keys maybe shift key will not interfere as much...

Keep FARR on great standard, it's an awesome app :)

On the keyboard options tab you can change the ctrl/alt behaviors -- you could change it so that ALT was for launch and stay open.

Hi,

Thank you for your comments :)
The Alt key is not keeping FARR opened even it is on the settings...

Looks like maybe with those settings with keyboard launch and not click?
