Outlook - How do you customise the view in advanced search?

I want to customise the view in the advanced search window. That is, I want to change the order of the fields and also remove some.

I can do this with View>Customise from the Advanced Find window menus but the changes are not permanent. Each time I do an advanced search, the original view comes back.

Any ideas on how to make permanent changes to the view?

This is one potential solution that I've tested in Outlook 2000, not sure if it works in other versions: http://www.outlook-tips.net/cs/blogs/outlooktips/archive/2005/03/01/28.aspx

Thanks Guid.

That's an interesting approach and it does work with Outlook 2003. I was hoping for a technique that would allow me to continue using Control/Shift/F to invoke the Advanced Search but I will try to retrain myself to use saved searches. I think the method requires additional keystrokes over Ctrl/Shft/F plus enter the search string, but the advantages are there. I really dislike the standard view used by Advanced Search.

Hopefully sometime in the future advanced searches will have the ability to save customized views. Until then, all we can do is find workarounds. :)

glad it helped some
