    How can I save the results of a search using the Windows Explorer that comes with Windows 2000. It saves the query but not the list of files found. I used this feature a lot when we had Windows 98. Company has now upgraded to Windows 2000 :(

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Thanks for the reply. However, that only saves the search criteria used in the query. I would like to save the results of the search.

    In Windows 98, the search results appear as a regular file list (e.g., file name, date, type, etc.) and this list of "files found" can be saved.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks Tony but the problem occurs at work and "no unauthorized" software allowed.

    I may try that utility for home, if I upgrade, but now that I have discovered this bug, I may stick with Win 98 at home, for now.

    Thanks again
