Software Manager: shortcut for the search field

It would be great to have a shortcut like ctrl+s or ctrl+f to go straight to the search field and start looking for software. Or, at least for that field to automatically get focus when you open the SM.

mintInstall rocks!

I'am thinking the same way. A immediate search emerged when SM loaded but keyboard cursor not focused on search field. Cursor focused on "Categories" button which is not useful.

While my searches, I took a look in many packages descriptions/details. But no shortcut to search field for make new search about my lookups.

Actually, opening the software manager and hitting the Tab key will take me right to the search field to start typing =S =D

Forwarding for consideration

Right, so, the idea is to be ready to type for new software *not installed* when the Software Manager comes up.

@blueXrider doesn't that just search through software that is already installed? If it does, then it isn't relevant to this idea.

Yeah Docky is a very useful tool for these kind of instances.

Use Docky with Cardapio

Searches software, files and applications as well as commands.
