    How to save a search


    I search by left clicking "This PC".
    A Window opens with a with a small EditText that says "Search" with a small magnifying glass.
    In there I type what I'm searching for.
    After a long time the window fills up with all the finds and their locations.
    How can I save this search?

    I did that.
    When I reopen the saved search, It conducts the search again.
    I don't want to search again I want to see the results of my last search.
