  1. Is there an easier way to jump to document search than typing "doc:"


    Hi there,

    I know, the windows search isn't the best. But I try to optimize things/workflow and tried to figure out the fastest way to search for documents. By default it jumps right into web search if it can't find something immediately. But if you type "doc: " at the beginning it jumps to the document search. That is cool, but is there an faster way? Like making the document search standard?

  2. Show Jump list not showing recent documents (or anything)

    I have enabled show recent documents in jump list (and restarted). There is a '>' after e.g. Word, Adobe but nothing shows when I click it. Hovering over the '>' brings up 'Show Jump List'.

    Second question is - does one have to click the '>' for recent doc to appear? If so this is a downgrade from W7 where the recent docs appear when one hovers over the program.
