Outlook advanced find often omits the "To" address. Field

I normally search Outlook using the Search Box at the top of the directory.
But I often use Advanced Find with "frequently used text fields" because it can be more thorough.

Unfortunately, at least once a day I navigate through field chooser because the search results pane does not show email "To" addresses.

This seems to be true for outlook 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

Has anybody figured out how to make the "to" column stick around?

I once solved a similar problem with Customer Search folders, but have never solved it for Advanced Search.

Here is my Advanced Search.  "To" is an advanced field. But "To" is not a defined field in the basic search.

Unfortunately, no one has posted any useful suggestions about my original problem.
If no one posts in the next few days I will close this problem.  It was probably just a waste of time.

If I use Basic Search I see the "From" field.  If I use Advanced Search, I see what is shown in the screen shot. I am not sure how else to approach this or what you want different.

The Star Trek email proves my point:  Maybe you were a CC on the email  but it was sent actually sent TO your boss.  

How can you tell who the Star Trek email was sent to when there is no "To" address next to it?  

Your next step is to use field chooser to add that field just like I said in my first post.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
From there you cannot (and so far as I know, never could).  You need to open the email to find out.

Is this your solution?
NO NO NO NO.  That is not the only way. Field chooser is a faster solution, but it is temporary.

I am giving up.
