    I type into the search box, suggestions come up, the first one is the one I want, how do I make what i'm typing autocomplete to that?

    If i'm entering a PATH J:\... Then things come up and I just need to hit down once for it to autocomplete.

    But, when it's finding a text file, it's a bit absurd, I need to push the down arrow 3 times. then ENTER

    This looks like the standard situation so maybe there's a way around it?

    for example, if I want to open blah.txt and I have in the past, then it comes up, when I type blah, but then the focus is on "see more results" and if I hit ENTER it opens that search window.

    if I hit down again, then ENTER then nothing happens

    if I hit down again, then it goes down the list to the first item, and if I hit ENTER then the file opens.

    So, had to hit down arrow three times.
