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 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.
Save a Search
- Click the Start button, and then click Search.
- Specify the criteria you want, and then perform the search.
- Click the Save Search button on the toolbar.
- Type a name for the search.
- Click Save.
To use a saved search, click the Searches link in the Favorite Links pane, and then double-click the saved search.
