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