You can start FARR with some commandline options for advanced usage:
  • -standalone = start FARR visible and in taskbar, and exit on close of window
  • -search "search string" = start FARR visible (or bring up any running copy) and start a search
  • -show = start FARR visible (or bring up any running copy)
  • -exit = exit any running copy of FARR.

This is great new feature !
i personnaly use it with autohotkey
i set up an hotkey to copy text or files path (when in my explorer) and open FARR with a search string ...

^!+c::
SendPlay ^c
ClipWait, 0.5
Run, C:\Documents and Settings\Nico\My Documents\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe -search "c "
return

easy and seems reliable  :Thmbsup:

one other idea, still using autohotkey, is to open FARR with the clipboard content as the search string...

^!+c::
SendPlay ^c
ClipWait, 0.5
Run, C:\Documents and Settings\Nico\My Documents\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe -search "%clipboard%"
return

let's say you select an url, press the hotkey and it brings FARR with the url in the search box, ready to be opened in a new browser, saved to del.icio.us (using curl), etc... thanks to a regex alias
^(https?://)?(([0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-]+: )?[0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-]+@)?(([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}|([0-9a-z_!~*'()-]+\.)*([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]{0,61})?[0-9a-z]\.[a-z]{2,6})(:[0-9]{1,4})?((/?)|(/[0-9a-z_!~*'().;?:@&=+$,%#-]+)+/?)$

that's a cool idea  :D

i'm quoting myself  :D

true it's easy and reliable, but slow
it take almost a second to bring up FARR using the search string

it would be great if it could be faster  :-[
