Setting Your Search Default in Windows Seven

Windows Seven has some interesting, if flawed, search options (some tips here.)

But install Google Desktop Search and you’re likely to lose the global shortcut key of Win + F, and there’s no obvious way to get it back.

Here’s how.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Find Default Programs (you may have to set Control Panel to classic view to find it.)
  3. In there, open Set Default Programs.
  4. For Windows Search Explorer, click on Set this program as default.
  5. Click OK.
  6. You’re done.
