Defaulting Advanced Find to always show details

I was teaching a webinar on Thursday and I told the students about a personal options setting that will save you a click every time you open the Advanced Find dialog.

By default, the Details of the query are hidden, as you can see here:


To actually edit the query, you must click details button on the Ribbon:


Which will result in the query being editable, as you can see below:


To turn this option on permanently, select File, Options to display the personal options dialog.

Change the Advanced Find Mode from Simple to Detailed as shown below:


Click OK when you’re done.

From now on, the Advanced Find will default to showing details so you can immediately begin to alter the query.
