Windows 7: How do I create a shortcut that searches?

How do I create a shortcut that searches?


I am in need of some assistance for a fairly specific task.

I wish to create a shortcut which will redirect to a folder with the search command "kind=picture" already entered.
I have done a bit of digging and found very little.

Either way; Does anyone know anything about a way this can be done using base windows utilities or must this be accomplished with a third party program?
