    Hello, i heard the rumor that instant search is gone from the menu bar in the new service pack 1. (well more than a rumor, i read it at Paul Thurrott's: http://www.winsupersite.com/reviews/winvista_sp1.asplook under "Other Functional Changes"). Can anybody verify this?

    And if this is true... can it be re-enabled? without instaling 3rd party software that is.

    Thanks.

    It's not gone really as like if you click start and then press the F3 key instant search will appear. I believe it is the windows key + F3 anywhere else. So it's not really gone.

    Is that what they mean when they say "solution for poweruser"?

    I'm more into solutions for lazyuser... haha but i guess that should work, thanks.

    Slight correction ... to launch the instant search now, press F3 after clicking the Start menu, or press the WindowsKey + F (not + F3).

    I finally made the jump to sp1, but found what i thought was the instant search in it's place (the white searchbar on the bottom of the start menu). I don't understand then, what changed? When i press the f3 in the start menu or hit windowskey and f the search window comes up, this worked like that before too. what is the diference?

    thanks.
