Hi I really love the ability to customise hotkeys a whole lot  ;D

One thing I notice myself doing a lot of times is Search -> find artist "xxx"  or similar or album. Would be nice to have a hotkey for that (unless there's already one but I can't find it)

I'd also like to suggest having separate hotkeys for delete: Delete song from library and Delete song from library and computer (Which I'll set to Delete and Shift + Delete just like for Windows Explorer)

Thank you

+1  for the search option - right now a universal command for searching (ctrl+F) opens a custom search window. would be great if ctrl+f was moving you to search field in main window, so that it was possible to star searching not touching a mouse.

(In Opera web browser apart from the ctrl+f shortcut there's another one, more convenient for me: searching starts with "." key, so fe. to find MusicBee you just enter .musicbee. how about making "." key moving us to the search field?)

The search setting is already possible under the Hotkey settings. Its not in front of me but look for a Search: Search box focus or something like that. And for delete, I don't understand what you mean. Can't you already press delete or Shift + delete on a song?

Thx cartman, you are right, it's as "general: goto text search box".

I was also just looking for Delete hotkeys, and didn't find them.  Would be nice if they were shown in the list, even if they weren't editable.
