some aliases I'd like to share
« on: July 04, 2015, 04:26 AM »
Some aliasses I use a lot

for listing the farr commands similar to gohelp
? optional-search-string

for searching the  launch history
/l optional-search-string

for searching alias names
/a optional-search-string

for searching plugins
/p optional-search-string

for searching the search history
/s optional-search-string

for opening options, no [Enter] required, use this at end of the search field

for hibernation
zzzz  (anywhere in the farr searchfield) (requires nirsoft's nircmd.exe in aliasdir)

Below you find my alias export for these commands.
To import you can select (the lines you like) copy them to the clipboard (ctrl+c), open FARR (ctrl-space or Break), type gooptions to edit options, go to Lists >>Aliases/Keywords/Groups right click in the list, select Import: Paste Preformatted Alias Groups

update textual : all
functional update : /o and zzzz

I hope you like them... they saved me a lot of time  8)
