Add A Search To The Toolbar

Do you often look for a particular type of file on your hard drive, such as MP3's? You can save the parameters of that search and add it to your Quick Launch toolbar. Open the Search window and type in what you're looking for then launch the search. When it is done searching, choose 'File->Save Search'. In the 'Save in' field at the top, select 'Desktop'. The file will be named x.fnd (where x stands for what you searched for).

Right-click on the new icon on the desktop and drag it onto the Quick Launch toolbar. Release the mouse and select 'Create Shortcut(s) Here'. If you don't want the shortcut to be called 'Shortcut to Files named x.fnd', right-click the new icon, select 'Rename', and type in a new name.
