SPACE + ALT GR as a hotkey ...

A rather simple request: Would it be possible to integrate SPACE + ALT GR as a possible hotkey for accessing Everything? This is the hotkey Apple uses for its Spotlight search, and since I often switch between Windows and OS X, having the same hotkey in both operating systems would be quite a nice thing for me ... :-) - Thank you!

I assume you tried it? What were the results? On my keyboard the 2 Alt keys seem to have identical function and when I use the one on the right of the space bar the hot key shows as Alt-Space (same if I set the alt key on the left). What do you see in the hot key setting when you press the keys?

"Everything" will not recognize Alt Gr as a modifier key.

Try setting Left Alt + Alt Gr or Control + Alt Gr.

I will look into setting Alt Gr as a modifier..
