Change what the search button searches

Is there a way that I can change how the search button picks which field it defaults to search?


I am in Act Premium 2011 and when I click the search button, it faults to whatever field the cursor was in last.  Can I have it deafult to the "Contact" field?

Re: Change what the search button searches

There is not a way to change the default here, but it's quicker to just RIGHT CLICK on the field you want to search and choose lookup. also, the Lookup view on the left defaults to the Contact field.
