Default to web search
« on: December 02, 2012, 10:55:55 AM »
I love FARR and have one question:

Is there a way that when I click the hotkeys ctrl-space it automatically does a web search without having to type in "s" or "search"?

All the searches I do are on the web, so I'm trying to eliminate that middle step.

Many thanks in advance,
Peter

Welcome to the site Peter  :up:

Yes, what you can do is easy.  Just go to the hotkeys tab, and right-click to create a new hotkey entry, or just edit the one for Ctrl+Space.

Then configure that hotkey so that in the "Text for Search Edit Box" is the next you'd like to start out on the FARR search line when it triggers; in your case whatever initial text you need to launch a web search.
