Based on DLMcMMayhem's hint, I found that following search will do what you need:
If you need to use this frequently, you can set up a mapping in your
.vimrc. This can be a bit tricky, because there are multiple ways to insert a keyboard code, some of which will only work in Vim (not GVim).
The easiest, most compatible way is to type out the following characters into your
map <silent> <S-F11> /\A\zs\a<cr>
map sets up a keyboard mapping
<silent> flag tells
map not to echo the command when it executes
<S-F11> means Shift+F11
If you're unsure how to spell a key, you can type Ctrl+V and then the key you want to map to, which will generate a unique code for any key chosen. The codes generated in terminal Vim, however, will be unique to that terminal and are not portable; specifically, they do not work in GVim.
Finally comes the keys we want the mapping to type out for us when we use the mapping key
<cr> represents Enter; it's required because you type Enter to perform a search action
