Launch Windows 7 Programs with Initials

One of the things I love the most about Windows 7 is the ability to just type in a program’s name in the search box rather than click through all that other stuff to launch it. So, if I want to launch Firefox, I just type “firefox” in the search box and click the icon that appears in the list above.

Well, did you know that in most cases you don’t even have to go that far?

Next time you go to launch a program from the search box, try just typing in the initials or the first couple of letters in the program’s name. So, Firefox could just as easily be opened by typing in “fi”, Internet Explorer could be found with “in” and so-on.
