Dash should highlight item activated on Enter

Asked by Denis Washington on 2014-02-19

Currently, it is not obvious which Dash item is activated when you press Enter while the search field has focus. Many users might not even know that they can activate the first search result by pressing Enter in the dash, and think they need to always navigate to it with the arrow keys or the mouse.

For this reason, it would be nice if the first item in the Dash would be visually highlighted somehow, to make clear that pressing Enter will activate it right from the search field.
