Note: Why is search in Activity Monitor disabled? is a similar but different issue that doesn't address the one here (I tried switching views to and from Hierarchically.

The command ⌘-F shortcut doesn't seem to work in Activity Monitor. Also, the Find menu options are greyed-out:

Note: command ⌘-option ⌥-F sets focus into the search bar

Although a search can still be preformed manually by clicking into the search box, the Find menu items remain disabled, except for Jump to Selection, which still doesn't seem to do anything.

Focus the Search bar via:

  • @Tetsujin It provides a working shortcut to the search box, which is primarily what I was after. I figured to also post my observation about the search menu items being greyed-out

  • What does? You're invoking cmd/opt/F to access the search bar - that's a pretty standard, almost global feature, used everywhere cmd/F has a different function.
