Finding Keys Quickly
To locate keys quickly, Configuration Editor allows you to search the key names in GConf. Additionally, you can use bookmarks to find directories of keys that you need to access frequently.
5.1. Using Bookmarks
To access a directory location in your bookmarks, choose the location from themenu. You can add and remove directory locations to your menu.
To add a bookmark, select the location that you want to bookmark in the tree pane. Choose.
To delete a bookmark, perform the following steps:
Select the bookmark in the Edit bookmarks dialogue, then click .
5.2. Searching for Keys
To search for keys, perform the following steps:
Enter the keyword you want to search for in the Search for field. You can also select the optional check boxes Search also in key names and Search also in key values. If these check boxes are not selected, the search will only be performed on folder names. Selecting these boxes will expand the search parameters.
The results from the search will appear in the results pane. To move through the results list, first select that pane. Then you can move through the results with the scroll bar or the arrow keys. The information for the selected key or folder will appear in the rest of the window.
