i use search a lot to find files and pictures. With windows 8, I cannot get back to the original found items, once I click on one found item and discover that it is not the right one in order to get the list back I have to do a new search. Is there a way around this?

Can you right click and open the item in a new window? Then close that window to get back to the search results.

Keep us posted

Sorry, I was unaware that MS had changed the search function for the worst. Maybe the next version will get it right. And if not then, maybe the time after.

I'm going to have to go from W7 to W10, nothing in W8.x impresses me enough to move.
