Save searches - Windows 7 Tips

How to Save Searches in Windows 7

If you regularly search for a certain group of files in Windows 7, saving searches is a great way to access them more quickly. Here we’ll take a look at how to share and organize searches in Windows 7.

Saving Searches

Anytime you are performing a search, you can click on the Save Search button in Explorer.

Now when you are in Explorer you will see the save searches under Favorites.

Another way to save a search is dragging the search icon in the address bar into your listed favorites list. Like in this example where I searched for “type:flac” and drag the icon to the list.

You might also want to create shortcuts to the searches on your desktop for easy access.

If you have a lot of files on your machine and need a way to access them quickly, saving searches is a great way to increase productivity.
