Curiously hitting Shift-Backspace removes the last letter in the search and does that search immediately, a bit of a pain if you didn't want it...

183 -
(In File Window)
Type ERF and go to file starting ERF
Type Shift-Backspace and got to next file starting ER

Bit of a pain if you wanted "E" next as that may have been passed by...
