    Hey,
    I was wondering if there is any way to make Spotlight automatically open the first search result when return is pressed, instead of opening up the full-blown Spotlight search window.
    Thanks for your help!

    Can't you just hit the down arrow to move to the top hit?

    It's just faster to be able to type in a few letters and press return, similar to the search function in Vista.
