    search inside epdm

      I am a fairly new user and have hit an issue I believe there should be a better solution for.  I am looking to insert an existing part into an assembly.  I have a file name, but not a folder location.  I know it is in the vault, but I don't know the exact location.  So, using my normal solidworks process, I insert component, browse, type the file name in the search box in the upper right corner and poof!! windows explorer searched multiple locations without any input from me.  It seems that in EPDM,I can search the whole vault with advanced search, but then I need to open the part so that I can cancel out of the navigation window and use the short menu in the insert component menu.  Or manually navigat to the folder location and type the part number in.  Am I missing something?
