Google Provides Hack For Google Desktop In Google Deskbar
Google designed the Deskbar with Google Desktop and similar products in mind, because it provided an easy hack to work the Deskbar with Desktop. It's rare Google actually gives this sort of advice themselves, but good for them. Simply: Go to Google and click on the Desktop tab. Copy your URL, which should look like this: http://012.3.4.5:4664/&s=6789012345&q=. Go to the Deskbar and click Options. Go to Customized Searches, click Add, paste your URL in the URL box, but add {1} (it'll look like:http://012.3.4.5:4664/&s=6789012345&q={1}) and name it Google Desktop Search. That's it, unless you want to fiddle with the options more. Thanks to the Unofficial Google Weblog for noticing this.
