How to use winkey + F in Windows 7?

Post by sfjuocekr » Thu Jun 10, 2010 5:29 pm

Is there a fail proof way to use the winkey + F shortcut to search with Everything?

The first time I tried setting the key in options explorer crashed and pressing the shortcut did nothing but open the Windows Search. So I disabled the use of Windows Search trough gpedit.msc, now winkey + F does nothing and also Everyhing doesn't pop up either.

So I would like to know if there are people who have managed to get the winkey + F shortcut to work with Everything.

I'll guess that you may need to run Everything 'as Administrator' for that change to be effected (thinking that is different from the UAC elevation prompt that you normally get).

I use Win-Z for SE. It is closer for my two fingers. AND I get the best of both worlds, I still have windows search (but have never used it).
