Use Delayed Search

Use Delayed Search

By default, when viewing the This PC source in Chocolatey GUI, anything that you type into the search box at the top of the screen will, after a short delay, filter the list of packages to what you have typed in. Some people prefer that the search isn't executed until they are finished typing, and actually press the enter key on the keyboard. Enabling this feature toggles it so that pressing the entry key is a requirement for the search to be performed.
