Windows 7: Search string delimiter?

Search string delimiter?

So I noticed 7 doesn't support a semicolon as a delimiter for searches. For example, A search like *.jpg;*.bmp always comes up with no results, even though I know there are both jpg's and bmp's in this folder, and running a search on *.jpg and *bmp separately yields those results, but now we just can no longer clump them together anymore in one single search with a delimiter?

try using "*.jpg OR *.bmp" (without quotes). Note that the delimiter "OR" must be in uppercase.
