browser searchengine sap notes

hey guys,

I have created a guide for chrome and firefox to reach directly an sap note


** Update: launchpad adress **

google chrome

  • go to settings – manage search engines – add a new search engine
  • name SAPnotes / shortcut n / URL ->
  • name SAPkba / shortcut kba / URL ->
  • If you enter now your Shortcut like “n” and space you see “Search SAPNotes” and insert your note number

same with kba enter “kba” space you see “Search SAPkba” and enter your search string




mozilla firefox * updated*


  • right-click into the search field and “Add a Keyword for this Search…”

Internet Explorer

** updated** my attached file was deleted by SAP. – Please change the URLS see other browsers.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\kba]
“Winaero_namevalue”=”SAP KBA”
” “=”+”

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\n]
“Winaero_namevalue”=”SAP Notes ”
” “=”+”

copy this text in notepad and save it as *.reg file and open it with double-click / YES

I’ve created this registry entries with the tool “IESearchCustomizer”

An entry will be created under “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl with the Name “n” and “kba”. Restart your IE.

Now you can type into the adress bar “n NOTENUMBER” – for example “n 123456” or “kba SEARCH STRING” – for example: “kba kernel error”



have fun
