Is there a way to make advanced find available in the context menu that

appears when I right click a folder in the navigation pane? It used to be

there in Outlook 2003 but has disappeared in 2007. CTRL+Shift+F will bring up

Advanced Find, but right clicking on the specific folder to be searched is

more convenient for me.

No. Unless you need the results in a new window, Instant search offers most

of the same search options right in the folder.

That is unfortunate. Instant Search is not a friendly program for me.

I agree that removing the context menu appearance of Advanced Find is an

unfortunate "improvement" in Outlook 2007. Being able to right click and

choose Advanced Find from the context menu associated with ANY Outlook

folder, without having "select" that folder was a valuable search tool for

me. I am disappointed to learn that it is no longer available, and I continue

to wonder why program developers feel compelled to remove features when they

seek to "improve" an application.

Hi,

I recommend the search tool Lookeen (http://www.lookeen.net) for doing

searches in Outlook. This add-in is displayed in the toolbar of

Outlook. It´s very fast and the search results are very good. Take a

look on it.

Hello,

yes, Lookeen is very good and extremely fast.

One question: with CONTROL+F it should show up, but it doesn't, it is the

outlook-shortcut for forwarding a mail.

How can i change this?

It is CONTROL+SHIFT+F.

No, this opens the extended search of Outlook (2007), but not

Lookeen-search.

I was wrong, they least answered, they said that it is not possible to

overwrite the Outlook-Shortcut, but you can use anotherone in:

Lookeen-Options / Search / Open Search Dialog with Shortcut

and this works. I put it on CTRL+L (like Lookeen)

i agree with the others. i REALLY miss having Advanced Find on the context

menu of all folders (search a specific folder without opening it first, in

new window). i used this all day long, and none of the new instant search

features are as good. in my opinion, the absense of this functionality is a

defect in 2007, and i hope it gets fixed soon.
