Subject:   All File Types?

I'm really enjoying this Google Desktop software (who knew i still had all these old photos) however i'm encountering some problems...


For example if i have a file called "Oreilly83" and do a search for "oreilly" it won't return the jpg unless i rename the file with a space before the number (which i won't)


also, I can't change my prefs to search for files outside of the few multimedia filetypes known to google... which is a real nuisance.. I can't use it to manage all my files so it will not become integral to my day to day operations...


theres no link to open up a windows explorer window of the parent folder, and additionally I can't highlight and paste location information if they are within certain folders (EG if they are in the "my documents" folder, the google search doesn't list the location as "C:\my documents" but just as "My documents"... so i can't know which drive its on...


Its still in beta i know, but these are the things i'd like to see them address
