Hello,

In Outlook 2007 MS removed the find function from the right click context

menu and hid it in the menus at the top.

I won't use the Desktop Search tool because I hate it.

Is there anyway to put the anvanced find back into the outlook context menu?

Thanks

It's not "hidden" here - it's staring me right in the face at the top r/h

side of the message pane.....

r-click, Find all opens the adv find menu. Or you can drag a shortcut to

the toolbars or look on the tools, instant search menu...

That is not Advanced Find but a basic find function.

I now realise that I didn't put "Advanced" in my message text but it was in

the subject line.

In the menus use Tools->Instant Search->Advanced Find to see what I mean.

In earlier versions of Outlook this was part of the right click context

menu.

When I right click and go to find all there are two options;Related Messages

and Messages from Sender and I need to select one of these. I can then

modify the search parameters but this is a pain.

I knew about the find in the instant search menu (I did mention it had been

hidden in the menus). I had considered putting it on the toolbar but I have

always found the right click find function very useful, particulary in the

Folder List. Lacking an ability to put it in the context menu the toolbar

is the second best option.

Why not customize the toolbar to include that button?
