Ability to search My Threads

    Question

  • It would be nice when in My Threads, to be able to search for a particular topic in only those I have responded to, not the entire Forum.

  • Use Google.  Make the query look like this:

      site:microsoft.com/forums/en-us +jwavila

    Add search terms as needed.

  • Thanks Hans

    although it really would be nice to have some more functionality in our own threads right here on the Forum.

    And also a link to our bookmarks right on our Profile page.

  • Yes, it would be nice when they switch to Google for their search engine.  I doubt that will happen soon.  Bookmarks are dead, they soon will be removed.  If that didn't happen already, end of last month, I thought.

  • Thanks for the follow-up, Hans

    wasn't expecting it.

    so will they switch to Google, now that MS has released BING ?

    And no more tagged threads, huh? I liked that so I could tag a thread to easily come back to later if it had specific info I wanted to review.

    is there any other mechanism, since the tags are going away, to mark certain threads for easy retrieval?

  • No.  Tags and bookmarks are two different things.

  • I agree - we should be able to easily search for our own posts -- without having to always put some Tag or token in the post to search on.
