I would like the file search via activities/super key to have richer features, for example

  • show last searched file first, as done in http://www.launchy.net/
  • underline the search text, as done in launchy
  • option to open the directory where the file is located, instead of opening the file itself, maybe with right mouse button
  • refine and reorder search results, as exquisitely implemented in https://www.voidtools.com/
  • show all search results in nautilus. When I click on the nautilus icon, which appears to the left of my activities-> search, the resulting nautilus window often shows the first occurrence only, sometimes nothing.

Can this be customized?
