Feature Request

Postby morrows_end on Wed Aug 11, 2010 7:34 pm

In the Mint Menu search feature, when I hit "Return" I wish it would select and open the top program in the results list. Also, if the arrow keys could help you navigate down through search results.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The arrow keys work.

Hit the down arrow key twice to get to the first result.

I love the mint menu. It is probably one the best features in terms of usability in my opinion, but I think this feature/behavior is missing as well. Pretty much every searchable menu that I know of or used works this way. It is pretty much the point of a menu. Its a menu not a file searcher. So I don't see why hitting enter results in a file search rather then opening the appropriate program. Seems counterintuitive unless I am missing something? Also is there a way I can manually enable this behavior?

I agree completely. For an example, I type gw to bring up gweled, then enter, and it launches a search for 'gw'.
Huh? Not what was even showing up. it is odd.

Personally, If I want to search for files, I have the Win-F shortcut configured to launch gnome file search. But I digress.

At least offering an option to change this behaviour would be wonderful.
