The Windows 7 Start Menu search function seems to work quite well for most programs. I type "wo" and "Microsoft Word is highlighted on the top of the list. I type "ex" and Microsoft Excel is at the top of the list, followed by Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer. But try and run regedit.exe and see what happens. "re" gives "Resource Monitor". Even typing out "regedi" offers only off-the-wall suggestions such as "message_1C45.htm", and "WSUS30deploymentguide.doc". Only when the entire word "regedit" is typed is the actual program regedit.exe offered. Even after I have run regedit.exe several times, the start menu does not "learn" that I like to use it and offer it as a choice sooner. Could it be that the search engine was deliberately coded to "de-prioritize" regedit? That seems like a lot of effort, but maybe it is true. Has anybody else noticed this? Is there any way to configure a more "objective" start menu search function?
