Save a Windows Search

I know that I’ve often found myself searching for the same file over and over again. You’d think I would learn where I put it. What a hassle to go to Search and put everything in again. Well, did you know that you can save a search?

After your search is complete go to the File menu and choose “Save Search”. Give the file a name and choose a location. Be sure to choose a place where you won’t have to search for it :-) I put mine in “My Documents”. Click “Save”.

Now when you want to redo that search just go to the location you saved it in and double-click the file (it has a .fnd file extension). All your search parameters are there and you can click the “Search” button to run it again.

This really comes in handy with more complicated searches, like when you scan for large files.
