Windows 7: What is this "Searches"

What is this "Searches"


New Win 7 Pro user here.

Found a folder:

C:/Users/Me/My Documents/My Music/Searches

inside this folder is:

Indexed Locations

MS Office One Note
MS Office Outlook


These sub-folders appear to have a copy of just about
everything that's happened.

My question:
How do I get to this folder (and sub folders)
in order to edit, delete etc.

If you know 7 Pro well and can explain what these folder are
and how to get to them ... well my appreciation.

Most users will find the searches folder at C:\Users\(UserName)\Searches. The Everywhere folder is a system file, so even if deleted will just be recreated. The folder is also used to save your Windows Explorer searches. See this tute by Brink:

Save a Search

This is different from your indexed searches.

Ta a guy,

once again microsoft interferes eh?
if i want to save my search i will;
don't need ms to run my life!

What gets me is that it appears that all my old emails
are also saved there ... long after I have deleted them ...
Boy I wish there was a way to say loudly,
'bugger off MS ...go dumb down someone else.

I can see very soon a nice external hard drive with
Ubuntu and freeware. I'm so tired of MS trying to control
what i do on my computer.
