    Is there a way to make it so after entering a search word into the Spotlight bar, the "Top Hit" will be selected by the first hit of the return key? I hate having to hit the down arrow once when I know Spotlight is going to find exactly what I'm looking for just to get the result and not the expanded window. It's equally irritating to use the mouse.

    Thanks a lot. It's still an extra step, but it's way better than using the mouse.
