While using People Search with a specific letter (default.aspx?k=LastName:s), it will show all people where the lastname contains the letter "s".

How can I change this showing all people where the lastname begins with the letter "s"?

use * symbol - k=lastname:s*. As far as I know contains is not allowed in keyword queries.

please check - contains is not supported by KWQ in search. But begin is possible – Yuri Leontyev Nov 20 '12 at 14:56
