On stock Fedora, searching for "sound" brings up the sound and volume
control. I recently installed Audacity and since then, searching for
"sound" brings audacity as the top result. Since then I've mistakenly
launched audacity several times because of muscle memory. This is kinda
annoying.. if I needed audacity I'd simply type "audacity". My
assumption would be that search orders by alphabet.
The first point I would make that placing the exact match on top and a
system utility at that would make more sense.
Another simple improvement would be to place more used programs on top.
If I launch Sound 30 times a month and audacity 1 times you could use
that information to order them appropriately. Something in the sense of
Firefox top sites that accumulate on your blank page according to page
visits except in this case to influence the order of results.
Are there any system settings to influence the search behavior right now?
