    Question regarding saved searches in File Explorer


    When I perform a search in File Explorer such as the one below, there is a "Search Tools" tab displayed. Then I save the search.


    ext:.mp4 OR .mov, modified:2/1/2015 .. 2/28/2015


    Now when I double click on the saved search, it finds the same files, but there is no "Search Tools" tab shown. So you can't do things like "Open file location".


    Is there any way to display the "Search Tools" tab after running a saved search?


    -Thanks

    :)

  2. File Explorer Search Not Working


    I am trying to search in File Explorer (Windows Explorer, My Computer) and it will not find anything. I can copy text from a name in the list and paste it in the search box and it still finds nothing. I have looked at the suggestions that have been posted and nothing I find that is relative to this works. Anyone have any suggestions? I am running Win 10 Pro on an I3 coustom desktop computer.
