as discussed in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=190520&p=1488457#p1488457

PLEASE allow for

1) searches of only specific subfolders contained within user folders (not the whole user folder)
2) allow the results of these searches to be list style, not hierarchical

I have a system where all my samples are keyed by mixed in key then organized by folder.

Example: Melodic Samples->Bass->Acoustic->Sample Library Manufacturer (ie Loopmasters)->Sample Pack->Samples in this pack (ie 1A Bass.wav, 2A Bass.wav, etc)

Now the problem is, with Live 8, I could select my Bass folder which in it has ALL my bass sounds and do a search for whatever key I want to find samples in (like 1A). Then the subfolder tree would disappear and Live would give me a list of ALL my bass samples in 1A. The problem with Live 9's browser is that I'll do the same search but the subfolders wont disappear, so now I have to manually navigate to each subfolder to find a file that matches the search. Basically instead of a nice clean list of search results I have to go diving through subfolders, and this is a huge workflow killer for me.

Per selected user folder, yes. The same way as live 8
