This tip is only for devices running webOS 3.0 and higher

Modifying the search and action options that are available to you when performance a Just Type search in webOS 3.0 is very similar to the how you adjust those options in 2.0, which just a few slight tweaks. You still need go access Just Type preferences, but that can now be found by opening the "Just Type" app on the SETTINGS tab in the app launcher, or by tapping the Just Type bar at the top of the screen while in card mode, swiping down from the top-left to bring down the Application drop-down menu, and selecting "Preferences".


Unlike in webOS 2.0, the preferences screen is now one really long list of options, with ON/OFF toggles or checkboxes for each item. From here, you can toggle entire areas of Just Type (e.g. Applications, Contacts, Quick Actions, etc) on or off to totally hide them, or you can tap on the checkboxes just for those items within those sections to determine if they should be available during a Just Type search. You will notice that this list will get rather lengthy, as every Just-type compatible App will be included here, along with every website that you have ever visited that participates with the Open Search web protocol. And unfortunately, there is no way to reorder or remove any of these list items in webOS 3.0 just yet, so the list will just keep growing over time.
