Windows 7: Storing more than the past 3 Explorer searches

Storing more than the past 3 Explorer searches

Hello,

Is there a way to configure Windows to store more than your past 3 searches? My Explorer is configured to store only the past 3, and I would like to store at least the past 10 or 20 searches.

Many thanks.

Keith

Hello Keith,

If you like, you could also save searches to keep as many as you like.

Save a Search

Hope this helps,

Hi Shawn,
That's helpful. I will consider those options.
I was sort of thinking of a registry option that would let me store more than 3 previous searches in the upper right drop down list. But saving searches into a separate file is a more scalable option.
Thanks.
