    Hello,

    I have built a official plugin for windows 7 to search the macrumors forum via windows explorer itself, all this does is create a search engine inside windows 7 explorer, you can access it any time from windows explorer at the left bar, all it is is a simple text document, you simply need to double click it to install:

    One more thing, turn off the red ink in the Snipping Tool. Why does everyone seem to leave it on. :(

    No it doesn't work as there isn't no opensearch built into vista, I tried it all it does is just error out on you and goes "unknown command" or something I can't fully remember actually :confused:

    If you want to make your own I think it's called Open search? or something I happened upon it a while back and found it stored on my external drive, I have youtube, flickr and other ones if you want, just ask.
