How do I set "C:" to be my drive to search

  Mike 00:26 10 May 2008

In Search I would like the first drive to look in to automatically be C:.

Can someone remind me how to do this. I thought it would have been in "Tips&Tricks" dut i can't find it.

To save a search query

When you complete your search using Search Assistant, click the search results pane, click the File menu, and then click Save Search.
In Save in, specify the location where you want to save the search query.
In File name, type a name for the file, and then click Save.

You can run a search using Search Assistant. To start Search Assistant, click Start, point to Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
When you open a search query, it will automatically begin a new search using the saved search criteria.
If you are searching for printers, and you filter your search results, the filter criteria will not be saved with the search query.

This works but not sure this is what I want. I have followed your instructions but I must use the saves file as my search assistant. It wont work from the taskbar F3 and I don't want to add a shortcut to the start menu. Or have I not done it correctly.

I was looking for a Reg adjustment.
