Searching for find.

So they have this new quick lauch bar, which allows you to find the command you want to activate.

Ok.

It looks like a search box. But it doesn't search your content, but the commands.

They even demonstrate it in the article by searching for the find command.

My mind is now completely boggled. They searched for Find so they could search for something in the code.

To come full circle, If I ever use VS 11, I'll have to create a function called Search.

So I can Quick Launch Find to Find Search.

This is because Visual Studio is a beast of an application, I have been working with it since 2006 (VS2003) and I still find new stuff in the UI that I didn't know was there.

In all fairness, I really doubt they needed to do a search to find "find," and that was just a bad choice.
