No that's not what I mean. It's hard to explain because you're thinking about something different. In XP, in any folder, if you search on a term, you get results in the right hand pane. Once the results are there you are able to select them all and move them, copy them, delete them etc.
Now in Vista and 7, if you open a folder, perform a search on a term, and view the results in the window, you can only copy them or send them to the desktop, etc. You are unable to delete them. That is the key. I want to search on, let's say "*.tmp" in a folder. I can perform that search and get results, but I cannot delete those results as a group. Now, I can highlight each one, right click it, and select "Open File Location" and delete it that way, but that is only one at a time. I want to select batches of files (in this case emails) and delete them as a group, and I cannot.
I hope this explains a little better what I am trying to do.
