File extension .SEARCH-MS
|Microsoft Windows Index Search Data Format||Microsoft||Misc Files|
The SEARCH-MS file extension is associated with Windows Desktop Search of Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a specialized format developed for Windows saved searches, allowing users to quickly and easily access customized search results.
The SEARCH-MS files are created and managed by Windows Desktop Search, which is built right into the Windows 10 operating system and can also be included in other versions of Windows as a tool by itself. Once created, the saved search will generate an associated SEARCH-MS file that can be accessed like any other folder on the computer. The SEARCH-MS file contains all of the search query parameters used to create it, including the specific item type, keywords (or key phrases) and desired presentation format of the search results.
Other saved search file formats are also available for Windows, such as BOOLEAN-MS, FIRSTRUN-MS, QRY-MS, and more.
Viewing SEARCH-MS Files
Users can view the contents of a SEARCH-MS file by simply right clicking and selecting "Open With" followed by their choice of compatible text editors. Note that since these are configuration files, opening them with a text editor allows one to view but not edit any of their contents.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .SEARCH-MS) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .SEARCH-MS extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .SEARCH-MS file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .SEARCH-MS extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .SEARCH-MS extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .SEARCH-MS file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .SEARCH-MS file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .SEARCH-MS file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .SEARCH-MS file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .SEARCH-MS file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
