When you click in the search box in File Explorer you should get a Search tab which has some advanced search options.
There is no "advanced search" options like in XP. But you can user advanced query syntax.

Here you have great tutorial How to Use Windows 7's Advanced Search Operators -

Sorry, I was thinking of Windows 8, disregard my previous post.
