hi,

There is no way to export Windows Search result in CVS file. but there is way to copy all the files and folder paths in Excel.

After executing a search in Windows Explorer, press Ctrl + A to select all
items in the right pane. Now press and hold the Shift key, then
right-click on your selection. From the context menu, choose "Copy as
Path".
