Integrating SharePoint Search with Windows Desktop Search

Found this little gem while reading Mark Harrison's blog. Very cool!

Mark Bower article on Searching SPS using Desktop Search.

Registry hack to add a button to the UI (need to logoff/on).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\DesktopSearch]
"PrimaryIntranetSearchScopeUrl"="Intranet,http://msweb/search.aspx?k=$w"

Save the text in a file with a .REG suffix and then invoke it. Note replace the name in green with your SharePoint machine name.
