So I just learned: set the keybinding “Commando: Open Commando With The Everything Scope” is maybe preferable over “Commando: Go to Anything”.
My “use case” was: I had the latter mapped to meta-p and a second mapping for ‘tools and commands’. I kept not getting the scope I wanted when I hit my everything mapping. Setting my meta-p mapping for the former solved it.
Hope that helps. Thanks to @nathanr for the assist.
