Custom Menu Searches

Our menu supports custom searches.

If you type in the Menu: “web” and then something say “web how many people are on earth?” and press enter, it will open our trade-free search engine and it will search for “how many people are on earth?”. We added a few such custom searches that can be very useful. See this demo:

The list of actions:

  • web: searches the entire web
  • files: searches for files and folders on your computer
  • wiki: searches on wikipedia
  • video: searches on invidious for videos
  • images: searches for online images
  • download: searches on the Bittorrent network for files
  • map: uses maps.trom.tf for searches
  • news: searches for news online
  • edu: searches on videoneat.com for documentaries/lectures
  • tf: searches on our directory.trade-free.org
  • help: searches on this forum

To add these if you don’t already have them added, go to the menu’s properties (right click it) and in the tab “Search Actions” add new entries.
