Is there a way with ACT! 2010 to have cursor always blink in "Look For" box when contact list view is opened

Hi:

 

I primarily used ACT! 2007 to find records by typing in "last name" from the contact list view in response to phone calls and whenever I selected ACT! using Alt Tab, I would just start typing the last name and I would get the record. 

 

Now, with ACT! 2010  I have to go through the initial step of clicking in the "Look For" box before entering the last name.  Or, if I minimize ACT! in the contact list view, the cursor will come up in the "Look For" box when I next select ACT!.  Either way it is an extra step which becomes tedious because of the number of times I repeat this action.

 

I've looked in the preferences and can't find a way to make ACT! 2010 work like ACT! 2007 in this regard.  Is there a way?

There have been changes due to the significant GUI changes in Act! 2010.

 

What you are looking for is not a configurable preference.
