Vista Search RRS feed

  • Question

  • my request is simple...


    I click on the start button, type in a search term into the search box... Now I click on everywhere...


    Vista default searches in my user directory - in this case Administrator.


    I would like Vista to search instead EVERYWHERE.. or at least the c:\drive...


    How can I change this default behaviour, I guess via a registry key?


    Thanks in advance
