⌘+O shortcut should auto-focus search field

  1. Context:
  • Decades of desktop app usage makes me hit ⌘+O every time I want to open a file, but…
  1. Problem:
  • …right now, ⌘+O passively brings the user to the file listing, and I end up manually clicking in the Search field from there and type the file name I’m looking to open—100% of the time.

  • Of course it’s a small thing. But doing it dozens of times per day add up to useless friction.

  1. Question
  • Would it make sense to always auto-focus the search field after ⌘+O is triggered?
