Windows 7: How to increase the amount of search suggestions in Explorer

How to increase the amount of search suggestions in Explorer


When searching a file located in a folder with Windows Explorer, I can see three queries suggestions.

Such suggestions match my last three queries.

Is there a way to increase the amount of suggested queries to more than three ?

I thank you in advance for any reply.

Hello patrmich

Welcome to Seven Forums!!

You wanted to know if you can expand the "suggestions" from the search box, in Windows Explorer?

I do not think there is a way of doing this. The "suggestions", as you see, are really "search histories", and only present the most recent "search histories" that the user made in the search box of Windows Explorer.
