Create a Search Folder

November 2, 2007 at 11:05 am 10 comments

Question: I want to have some searches saved so that the search will operate more faster. And how do I create a search folder?

Answer: You can find files faster by saving your most common searches. (This tip is for Vista users)
1) Go to the Index Search Explorer in Windows Vista by clicking ‘Start‘.
2) Create a search by typing your query in the search box at the bottom of the Start Menu. As you type, files from a variety of locations on your PC appear that match your text.
3) Once the search is completed, on the toolbar click ‘Save Search‘.
4) In the File name box, type a name for the search, and then click ‘Save‘. The search is saved in the Searches folders, which you can open by clicking the Searches link in the Navigation pane.

    It’s also possible to save search queries using WDS and Windows XP SP2. This is accomplished by adding the search query to your favorites, from within the Windows Desktop Search Results UI, via Favorites > Add to Favorites.
