Default operation for double-clicking on a search result

This policy setting controls what FileSeek will do when double-clicking on result(s) in the search pane. This policy setting requires a restart of FileSeek to take effect.

If you enable this policy setting, FileSeek will perform the action selected from the drop-down in this policy setting.

If you disable this policy setting, FileSeek will open the file(s) in the default handler for that file type.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the "Default operation for double-clicking on a search result" option is configurable from within FileSeek ("Open with Default Handler" in a default installation).

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2003 operating systems or Windows XP Professional
