Saving a Search



If you frequently perform the same search, you can save your search results (New!) like any file and perform or modify the search again later. When you save a search, the search is saved by default with Window Search Explorer in the Searches folder, which you can open by clicking the Searches folder link in the Navigation pane. Like any link, you can move a saved search from the Searches folder to the Favorite links section in the Navigation pane to make it more accessible. To run a saved search, display the saved search link, and then double-click it.
