In the search box is the text "Type here to search".
For a bit if fun I wondered if I could alter it to "Wotcha looking for eh"
A search of the registry yielded two locations where "Type here to search" can be seen.
So a quick tweak of the data and a restart brought up my desired result.
I continued working but noticed shortly after that the original search box text had reappeared - and I don't know why !!
Do you ???
Thanks for any pointers.
