Just an Idea, when you type in the Search Box here in the Community a Preview pops out..
I could imagine the Functionality in M-Files Desktop like this:
1) Type Keyword
2) Preview shows some Elements
3) You click one Element and it shows this Element alone in a View
Advantage would be that user has only the Element he wants to work with and not the Rest of the Search which is sometimes a bit much.. For the Classic behaviour you could simply hit enter after entering the Keywords like how it is now..
