Searching PoshCode repository from your Desktop in Windows 7

A picture says a thousand words



Search results from the PowerShell Code Repository right there on your desktop in windows 7 thanks to federated search and Jaykul adding OpenSearch support to PoshCode. YAY

So how do you get this. Simply download this link  and save is as fileextention OSDX from your windows 7 machine. Then Run it. It seems if you just try to open it in IE, you’ll just get the XML.


That is a simple OSDX file that is just an XML file describing the OpenSearch interface. the full text is here. and it comes from PoshCode itself.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<OpenSearchDescription xmlns="" xmlns:moz="">
