    Hello

    If you press

    Apple - F

    It brings up the 'Searching this mac' box

    If you press

    Option - Apple - Space bar

    You get exactly the same result, the 'Searching this mac' box

    Though I thought that typing in

    Option - Apple - Space bar

    Would bring up, Spotlight box??

    I'm using 10.5.6

    Thanks

    Option-Apple(Command)-Space is spotlight, in a window.

    Apple(Command)-Space brings up the box in the corner ...

    Apple+Spacebar brings up the Spotlight box.

    Apple+F only brings up Searching this Mac if Finder is the current active application, where as Option+Apple+Space will bring it up always.
