As per my experience, in the explorer search window, you be able to click on those choices you talk about similar to ?Date Modified? or else ?Size? to provide you a record of yet more advanced options. Such as, if you are inside your music folder: click Genre inside the catalog of filters Without clearing the Search box, as well as after that click Jazz from the record of dynamic value. It will add Genre to the accessible Length filter, permitting you to process your search additional. Please let me know if you require further help!

To recognize your problem better, please allow us be familiar with the choices which you be able to presently view as well as the choices which are presently grayed out inside the search filter. I know that Windows 7's add a Search Filter choices emerge inside a drop-down menu box instantly under the Search text box within a Windows Explorer window. The genuine search filters you will observe listed differ depending on the kind of drive, folder, or else file which is presently chosen in the windows Explorer window.
