Vista: Save Searches

Posted January 30, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Vista

If you find yourself repeating the same search for files, you can save the search and have Vista repeat it instead of manually rebuilding the search each time. To do this…

1. Click Start and type the info you are searching for.

2. Click See all results.

3. When the search is complete, click Save Search on the toolbar.

4. In the File Name textbox, type a name for the search.

5. Add any necessary tags in the Tags textbox.

6. Click Save.

Your search is now saved in your Searches directory. To open a saved Search, open Windows Explorer and click Searches. Double-click the saved search from the list and Vista will repeat the search.
