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)
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.
