Windows 7: Sorting search results causes search to rerun

Sorting search results causes search to rerun

When I search for something using the search box in explorer, the search results are shown in detailed view. Let's say they are sorted by name. If I click on the date modified field, instead of sorting by date modified instantly, the whole search starts over! Is something wrong with my Windows 7, or is this a "feature"?

Might just be the way your search is configured. what would you like it to do?

I want to sort the search results without having to restart the search. AFAIR, in XP searches did not restart when I sorted results.

Deleting Search Results
