The Help Topics say that Ctrl+Alt+F should go to the search field, but it don't here. I'm on Windows 7, with iTunes 11.

Is there a shortcut for the search? (I really don't like to have to use the mouse)

Same problem here, but I have the answer: CtrlShiftF

Hey... that works now. I thought I tried every combination with "f" last time... anyway, thanks! – Tom Brito Dec 9 '12 at 23:23

I don't have a Windows install handy to test, but the OS X version did change the shortcut from optioncommandF to just commandF. The equivalent Windows shortcut would likely be controlF.

No, I tried every combination with "f" or "s". – Tom Brito Dec 8 '12 at 13:00
