In the recent TR Dojo video, I demonstrate how to create targeted searches with Windows Search Advanced Query Syntax (AQS). While AQS is a really powerful addition to Windows Desktop Search, I wonder how much real-world use it gets. Have you used AQS to solve a particular search problem? After seeing a demonstration in the above video, do you think it's worth trying out? Tell me how useful you think AQS really is.
