    Apart from the two search CLSIDs (that use the new modern interface)

    Search Apps {2559a1f8-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}
    Search Files {2559a1f0-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

    were you able to find the CLSID for "Search Settings" (equivalent for WIN + W keyboard shortcut)? I couldn't locate it in this list.

    I tried to search for it manually in the registry, but had no luck. Also tried with RegShot Unicode (x64), but didn't get any useful info either.

    It would be very helpful for me if I could find this CLSID as I want to integrate it as a button in a custom toolbar for Total Commander (I use it for 12+ years and it's miles ahead Windows File Explorer). Not that I'm so lazy and I couldn't press Win+W, but would be nice as a custom button too

    Thanks!

    Hello Yoshi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I haven't found a GUID number for "Search Settings" yet either.

    If you like, you could use the "Search Settings" shortcut in the new tutorial below for this.

    Hope this helps,

    Thank you very much for this. Yes, it helps me a lot, as I can assign anything I want in the Total Commander command box.

    I believe that "Search Settings.exe" it's a AHK or AutoIt script that emulates (sends keystrokes) Win+W, correct?

    It's a nice idea.

    You're most welcome Yoshi.

    Yes, that's exactly correct for what the "Search Settings.exe" is.

    Hello Afarhath, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The correct target location to use for a shortcut of that is this below. It opens whatever desktop program you have installed and set as your default email client program. For example: Windows Live Mail or Outlook


    explorer.exe shell:::{2559a1f5-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
