When I do a search for something, usually I want to find a specific question I have previously been to. If I am searching for it, it is likely to have been considered important and starred. I would like an extra tab alongside "info", "newest", "frequent", "votes", "active" and "unanswered", labelled "starred" that only shows questions I have starred that match my search criteria.

Edit: Both answers thus far have commented that there is an infavourites:mine filter that can be applied to the results. Given that I've been here many years and did not know of this, an alternative way of satisfying this feature request would be to place a link on the search results page which appends this filter to the query string.

    Alternatively, you could have a "starred" filter switch somewhere in the screen so that you can see your starred questions among the newest, frequent, votes, etc. search results. Sep 2, 2013 at 10:13

We really do not require an additional tab for starred questions in the search result because we can search within our favorites questions or other user's favorites questions.


You can mark particular question as favourite and then return as and when you desire.. Once you starred as favourite you can visit those question in your profile --> favorites tab

  • But if you star more than just a few questions, you need use the search functionality within them, which is what the question is about. Sep 2, 2013 at 10:14
