In Leopard, you won't have to arrow down to select the top hit. If you type "word" then hit return when it comes up, Word will launch.

That's today's Brian's bit.

Hey, a new feature-Brianbits! I like it.

That's a minor change but makes a big difference. Cool! Where did you learn that?

Can't remember where i heard about it. But my reaction was the same as yours: great idea.

Apple's page says it, though: http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/spotlight.html

"...if the top hit is your hit, you don’t even need to select it. Just hit return and it opens."
