This trick was inspired after reading this viewtopic.php?f=7&t=230. It allows you to input data to any field when this field is hidden and there are no hotkeys available for this purpose by default.
Requirements:
Autohotkey - https://www.autohotkey.com/
SimpleSpy - http://the-automator.com/SimpleSpy
The Script below:

Installation:
1. Install AutoHotKey
2. Extract and launch SimpleSpy
3. Drag the findertool over the search field as shown below:

4. Copy a value in the control field (in the example above it's ComboBox14, but you might have another name) and replace the value by default in Search.AHK (ComboBox14) by your value if these values are different. Save.
5. Run Search.ahk
6. Press F4 to open the search box (you can change this hotkey to another hotkey to find more visit https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/KeyList.htm)
7. Input text and press "OK" button

Sorry for being off-topic, but may I know how you created these animated GIFs?

Thanks. I use LICEcap. I will compare the two programs with each other.

'ScreenToGif' could also be a 'Tips and Tricks' post...
