I hope there is a way to select YouTube without painfully mousing it? While keeping Enter for Google of course :!:

Thanks in advance!

You can start the search with '@' to get a list of available search engines and select YouTube.
You need to add YouTube as a search engine and assign a keyword to this search engine in "Option -> Search" by double-clicking in its keyword column.
This keyword needs to start with '@' (@youtube or @yt) to get included in the drop-down list that shows if you type '@' in the location bar.
You can order the search engine list to place YouTube at a convenient position (drag an item up or down).

If you do not have a YouTube search engine listed in "Option -> Search" then look here:
YouTube (youtube.com) by Mycroft Project

Been a month sorry misinterpret just wanted to assign hotkey for YouTube since Enter does Google and thought YouTube ought to be as painless as to disregard mouse pointer

Welp, hitting the down arrow key lets me cycle through the search engines, much better than nothing than mousing

Thank ye kindly!

EDIT: Sweet, up arrow x2 selects YouTube rightoway!! :mrgreen:
