Do you do a lot of searching in Windows Explorer? You can make it quicker and easier for yourself with a custom shortcut on your Desktop. We’ll show you how to create a shortcut that opens Windows Explorer ready for you to begin a search.
OK. Now refine it such that you Explore, for example,
only Excel files in that folder.
Of course that can be done by typing "type:xls" in the window you refer to,
but it would be even better if the window opened with that option already set.
In Windows 7 you just hit the windows key and start typing, isn't that easier and give the same result?
I'd like a shortcut that searches only 1 folder a network share and its sub folders for just mp4 files, How would I accomplish that?
"Sorry just remembered, saved searches, will do what I asked about."
But I Still think the Win Key and start typing is faster and easier then a search shortcut.
