    Quick look up in finder by typing first letters of the filename isn't very usable after apple decided to change it. Especially when you have, like, 1000 files in one folder and you navigate there by typing the first filename letters.

    BEFORE, you could start typing the filename's letters one by one and that would bring you to the file:
    if you look up in the list "before.txt" you typed B_E_F_ and already there
    NOW, each letter brings you to the files starting with that letter:
    if you type B_E_F that brings you first to files starting with B, than to E, than F.

    How do I change it back?

    Mine still works the way I expect (i.e. it would find before.txt), unless I leave around a second between each keypress.

    Isn't the allowed delay set by the key repeat rate in System Preferences?
