Typing the keyword and hitting enter will prompt an immediate launch of the application. So make sure its correct. If you know of any more feel free to add to the list. <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes"></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><U>Program<SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 2"></SPAN><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 1"></SPAN><SPAN style="mso-tab-count: 2"> - Keyword</SPAN></U>
