Non-recursive searches only the current folder. Recursive goes into
all sub-folders of the current folder as well.

Nothing else is done.

What you're asking for has been described in a "virtual folder"
paradigm in various fora but to my knowledge the developers haven't
caught that itch yet. ;)

It's part of an actual release now. I see you're on 3.7.9 so you'll
find many new cool things in the latest 3.9.0 including this feature.
