Here's what would turn this into total nirvana for me.  Imagine I enter "ws kind:contact doug".  I'll get a list like follows
1: Doug Smith
2: Douglas Ward
3: Mike Douglas

If I could choose one of these results and rather than opening the outlook contact file, I could specify what field (windows search indexed) I wanted to have returned in FARR.  So if I wanted to see Douglas Ward's mobile, I would choose 2 then "mobile".

Better yet, have the returned field be another parameter in a larger string.  So if I want to send Douglas Ward an email, I can use ws to search for him and pass the email parameter into the current FARR email alias.

Not sure if I explained that very well.

there sure is.
you create an alias that uses the dosearch function.  here's a thread with an example:
Thanks.  Works great!

Wow.  This is great. 

Question: I find that I am typing in similar sets of parameters a lot, ex. "ws text2\ ext:.txt /a"  Is there a way to setup an alias to shorten that?
