Default Shortcut to activate Windows Search?

Not a problem to set Windows Search to manual mode.

Is it possible to set an activation shortcut?

Maybe even another to disable the service?

Other than opening a search window, I'm afraid it doesn't do anything else for me on Windows 10.

Is this what you are wanting to do?

To change this setting, do the following:
Press Windows Key + S and enter indexing. Select Indexing Options from the menu. ...
Now you'll see the list of indexed locations. Click on Modify button.
Uncheck the locations that you don't want to index and click on OK to save changes.

Well, now that i'm there, i disabled quite a few non-essentials, so that should help some, thanks!

Was actually wanting to disable the search feature to stop the indexing until i'm ready (like away from the computer for a while). But that would probably require a few too many steps to my liking.
