    getting back the search panel form xp

    Is it possible to have a search panel like this

    especially with an easy access to ''search or not in subfolders''

    Hi and welcome to Eight Forums,
    Seeing this gave me memories, especially that dog and wizard guy animation when u tap search, lovely old days! Alright, in my opinion the new search features are more accurate and easier to use, i have no idea why you want such old panel to use, and i don't think anyone bothered to mod the explorer.exe file to add this but if i am not wrong there is similar programs that u can get and will probably have the exact same search panel, if i can find one ill make sure to update u with the link.
