Google desktop search

Some time ago I installed the Google Desktop Search utility so I could quickly search my hard drive for all sorts of stuff I know is on there but can’t remember where. Well some time ago I discovered that hitting Windows+G was a fast way of searching my desktop as it started a new browser window and brought me to the Google Desktop search window.
 
Well this morning I hit the Ctrl key twice by accident and discovered that was an even faster way to search :-) Doing so activates a small popup window allowing you to search the local disk and the Internet. It even lets you start programs, just hit Ctrl twice and type notepad and start it, next time just typing an N is enough to have it at the top of the list. Now I have no clue how log I have had this feature but it sure is useful :-)
 
Enjoy!
