3. In the right column, select Home.

4. Tap Search Results.

6. Uncheck the items that you do not want included in the result set.

7. To change the order of the items, perform a tap, hold and drag using the associated icon to the right of the search item. Drag the item to the desired place and release. Repeat for the other items.
