    Default Save Searches

    I'd like to be able to save my IPTC searches in thumbnails. This is because searches take significant time and I often need to find the same set of images.
    It is not even possible to copy the list of path/filenames in the results box. The only workaround I can see is to take a screen shot(s) of the results box.

    It's amazing how many features IrfanView has that I never know about.

    A workaround, after performing the search, Show in Thumbnails, Select All, Start Batch with selected thumbnails, then save as text.

    Thank you Bhikkhu Pesala. I had tried to use "Save Selected Files as Current Slide Show" but it didn't seem to work. Your method works well. I hope that we will have a Save Search function some day. That way it will pick up any new files. Thanks for taking the time to find and test a work around.
