Windows Explorer – Just Type it In!

I blame Google Chrome for this, but I’m so used to being able to use the “Omni Bar” for finding stuff quickly, that I accidentally did it in Windows 7’s Windows Explorer the other day.  I went up to what I thought was the address bar, and actually typed in “Desktop”.

To my surprise – and utter delight – it worked!

I then proceeded to test it out with a bunch of other locations on my computer – Fonts, My Documents, Music, etc. I was quickly zapped to the location on my hard drive, and anything that didn’t work opened up my browser for a web search.

So type it in next time – you might like it!
