a) reset the search list so it doesn't show recently accessed items.
b) not show hidden items.
Sorry to say, Brazuca, but at least my system doesn't react like that. RC build 7100. What build do you have? (EDIT: I do not believe this to be a build issue. Search works just as I'm telling)
Two files here, aaaaa.ccc (not hidden) and aaaaa.bbb (hidden). I have opened the hidden file to edit or read or whatever reason:
I go to Folder options and choose "Show hidden Files", then I search for files containing "aaaaa". Search displays 2 files:
I go back to Folder Options and choose "Don't show hidden Files". When I click APPLY, the hidden file aaa.bbb disappears instantly from search results and won't come up in later searches:
My first answer was and still is correct to the question you asked. Hidden files are never shown in search results.
After working with your hidden files you have to remember to go back to Folder Options and choose "Don't show hidden Files".
