How can I add a search domain in Windows 7?

For example, if I typed mail into a URL, it'd automatically add .google.com when I hit Enter. On my Mac, this is equivalent to going into my network settings and adding a search domain.

  • Go to Control Panel → Network and Internet → Network and Sharing Center.
  • Click on Change Adapter Settings on the left side.
  • Right-click on your network adapter (normally "Local Area Connection" or "Wireless Network Connection") and select Properties.
  • Select Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on the Properties button.
  • On the General tab, click on the Advanced… button.
  • In the Append this DNS suffixes list, add the domains you want, like google.com.

I just tried and it worked for me. By typing "mailENTER" in Firefox, I was sent to Google Mail.
