Start Menu Search - Programs, Files categories
I want to customize my start menu search. In Vista, I just told the indexing service to search only in the start menu folder, and monitored the folder myself (added and removed shortcuts as I wish). It was great, and it replaced Launchy very comfortably. I made shortcuts to folder locations on my computer for very quick access (Start+mus+enter would open my music folder, etc.)
In Windows 7, the shortcuts to folders will fall under the "files" category (instead of the programs category), which takes about 4-5 seconds just to show up, even though my whole index (just the start menu folder) is only 73 items (shortcuts), and pressing enter would open up the 'See more results', instead of the first entry. Basically, the start search looks at program shortcuts first, and considers other shortcuts to be normal files. Is there anyway to make the start search consider all shortcuts like program shortcuts?
BTW, if anyone can tell me why I can't edit my sig with WYSIWYG or with tags (as you could in Vistax64 forums), I'd appreciate it a lot.

I hate to bump, but I'm still looking into this, and I can't find anything. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, even a hint may point me to the right direction. I'll post back if I find anything helpful.
This seems to be my answer... Shortcuts to Windows programs are given a higher priority. Doesn't seem like there's much I can do about it, except hope that someone will find a reghack to disable it...
