Customizing defaults for Vista SEARCH RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to set up Search, with a default that automatically has:
    LOCATION - all my Local Hard Drives (C:;D:;G:;HSmile
    DATE - any
    SIZE - any
    INCLUDES - always, my non-indexed, hidden, & system files
    AUTHORS - None or NA (or just isn't a displayed/listed field)
    TAGS - None or NA (or just isn't a displayed/listed field)
    *NAME - Only field that I ever use & want to continue to use

    So ... how can I easily set my Vista Ultimate 32-bit PC system up to actually do this ... HOPEFULLY, without writing code or consuming a lot of Time?  Basically ... How-To _____  in easy, bite-size, brain-use-minimal, steps?  Thanks to all replying Wizards!

  • Hi Ken,

     

    As far as I know, there's not an easy way to save the customized options in Advanced Search. However, you can save a

    search result, which will also save all customized options with it. And then you can open the result before a new

    search. The options will be hold as the same in the result.

     

    To get started, click Start -> Search. Type a character in the search box, then click Advanced Search. Modify the

    fields to what you want, click Save Search.

     

    For next search, open the result from Favorite Links -> Searches, and then open Advance Search panel, you will find

    the options are what you defined before.

    Save your search results
