I regularly create / download / copy new files to my Laptop. They usually go on my desktop until I have time to organise them properly in my documents. All my docs are stored on an External hard drive, which has a Library called 'documents', which points to the hard drive root. I also have separate libraries for certain locations e.g Music, Video's etc.

I'd like to know if there's a way to create a library that automatically lists the most recently added documents? The reason being, when I file a load of mp3's, jpgs, docs, mpgs, psds etc into thier relevant folders on my data drive, they're then hidden from view so I can't tell at a glance what the most recently added stuff is.

Can a 'search folder' be created in the Windows 7 library?

Hi -
A good quick guide from M/soft >> Windows 7 features - Windows Search - Microsoft Windows

And a good guide from Seven Forums on Search Guide in Windows 7 - From Windows 7 Forums

I prefer the second one -
