Use F3 in Explorer to Open FileSeek

Is it possible to replace the F3 commmand in Windows Explorer so it opens FileSeek in the current folder to perform a search? I'd like to replace the default windows search engine with FileSeek.

This isn't something we'd be able to implement unfortunately. It would require FileSeek to be always running and hooking the keyboard.

Sorry!

Hey Keith, thanks for the reply. I've seen other similar software with this functionality. I can point you to FileLocator by Mythicsoft, witch I use currently, but I'd really prefer using FileSeek, since it seems to have a lot more functionality and is prettier!
It wouldn't require FileSeek to be opened in background. What I'm suggesting is that AFTER I press F3 in Windows Explorer, FileSeek would open and just load the current path opened in the Windows Explorer window.

If it's not running in the background though, what's intercepting the F3 keypress?
