There shall be searchfield focused automatically when you press ctrl+h or open history dropdown.
Like searchfield activates automatically (if you have seatchfield enabled in taskbar) when you press WIN button, so you can start typing immediately without clicking on field. For example I just press WIN and type not and press ENTER: it opens notepad from search. The same behaviour for history menu please! It would be great and handy addition.
