Save a Search in Windows 7

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 by | Filed Under: File & Disk Management

Did you know that you can save a search string in Windows 7? It’s really helpful if you commonly search for one kind of item on your hard drive, so you don’t have to go typing it in every time.

Here’s how you do it.

First, open up Windows Explorer. You can either click Start>Computer, or type in Windows Explorer in your Search Box located above the Start button.

In the upper-right had portion of the Windows Explorer window, you’ll see a box where you can type your search in. I typed in jpeg, to search for all the jpeg files on my computer. (obviously you can use your own search term).


Once your results pop up, click the Save search button, which is located on the left side of the Windows Explorer window.


Another windows will pop up and ask you to name your saved search. I just click Save.

Now you’ll see your saved search under the Favorites section in the left column of Windows Explorer. You can click on it at anytime to automatically start your custom search!

How Neat!
