ShowTopResult

Updated: August 1, 2012

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

ShowTopResult specifies whether the TopResult feature is used with search requests in Windows® Internet Explorer®.

This setting works with the TopResultURL setting.

Typically when an end user performs a search, the search provider returns a search results page. With the TopResult feature enabled, when the search provider is confident that the end user is searching for a specific website, the search provider can choose to skip the results page and instead return the new site.

 

true

Specifies that the TopResult feature is enabled for this search scope. When the search provider is confident that the end user is searching for a specific website, the search provider can choose to skip the results page and instead return the top search result returned by the search engine.

This is the default value.

false

Specifies that the TopResult feature is disabled for this search scope. Searches will return a search results page.

For a list of the Windows editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-IE-InternetExplorer.

The following example shows how to enable the TopResult feature for a search provider.

<SearchScopes>
   <Scope wcm:action="add">
      <ScopeDefault>true</ScopeDefault>
      <ScopeDisplayName>Contoso</ScopeDisplayName>
      <ScopeKey>SearchProvider1</ScopeKey>
      <ScopeUrl>http://www.contoso.com/search?q={searchTerms}</ScopeUrl>

      <ShowTopResult>true</ShowTopResult>
