Windows 7: Expanding "recent Entries" within Windows Explorer Search bar

Expanding "recent Entries" within Windows Explorer Search bar

Hi all

My problem is the Windows Explorer Search bar, which is to find in the upper right corner of every Explorer Window (BTW, my OS is Windows 7 home premium SP1).

This image url example.png - directupload.net explaines my question with one quick view

The WindowsExplorer search bar provides a Choice for only the latest 3 search terms, typed in, for a lookup, recently. These 3 terms show up as a list, in the moment you start to type-in a term. Problem is, you NEVER see more than only the latest 3 search terms. Every newly entered search term would overwrite one of the latest 3 terms.

It would help strongly if I could rely on, say, the latest 10 (recently used) search terms.

Is there a way to expand the Explorer list (of recently used terms), to a higher count?

Big Thank you in Advance.

Hi all,

Windows 7 Registry Forensics: Part 4

refers under Paragraph 5 at least two registry keys, that seem to be involved during a user-invoked file search, using Windows-Explorer.

Question remains, if this is part of the solution. Could some key editing here help solving my problem?

thanks.

safe to assume its impossible to remove the "open" and the "merge" entries from the context menu? I figure if i want to open or merge them i would simply double click. Clutter and redundency in this vein dont suit me :P
