How do I turn off the auto selction of text in search and other fields? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For instance, when I click on search in the windows 7 ribbon or whatever,99.9% of the time I only need to change one or two characters from the last search. having it highlight the entire text forces me to either use the arrow keys or click click to get to the last position or whatever position it is that I need. I REALLY want, and need for sake of productivity in this particular environment, for it stop clearing the text or selecting the entire string(). This is easily as irksome as the fact that I cant disable snapping windows to the top of the screen and leave the sides enabled.
