How is a search done with quotes automatically surrounding the terms or phrase that you wish to check, i.e. an exact phrase search? On one of my computers, they are automatically inserted (by default) when I highlight a phrase in, say, Word, and press CTL ALT G. On my other, I have to manually put the quotation mark(s) there; actually, you just need the leading mark.

What setting, e.g., preferences, options, is used to set this feature as a default? "Google deskbar" options do not provide this option as far as I can see. It comes up when right or left clicking on the icon down in the system tray on the right of your computer.

Is there really nobody with any suggestions. It really is very expedient to have this feature, instead of having to put it the quotes all the time.
