HOWTO: Internet Explorer quick search
 
In IE5.x you could lookup MS knowledge base articles quickly by typing: "MSKB q123455" without quotes in the address bar. In ie6 it is removed, but it is a feature! Which can be enabled in IE and not only for MS KB but any search site. save underneath text in regfile and merge it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\MSKB]
@="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=%s"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\AV]
@="http://www.altavista.com/sites/search/web?q=%s"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\Ggl]
@="http://www.google.com/search?q=%s"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\MSN]
@="http://search.msn.com/results.asp?q=%s"

afaik, is this right?
go to
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\ << shortcut >> ]

and create there a string with the desired url, right?

:hello:

In IE6 you can lookup MS knowledge base articles quickly by typing: "google MSKB q123455" without quotes in the address bar.

uhm not quite :p
if you imported the keys from the 1st post you just need to enter "MSKB q123456"

:leet:

IE6

imported regfile with "google" - string (google in stead of "Ggl" mentioned in first post - doesn't influence the result but more appropriate naming)

1) address bar -> fill in "madshrimp"
result = msn search

2) address bar -> fill in "google madshrimp"
result = google search

:D
