[xubuntu-users] Thunar Saved Searches possible?

Thanks though I see now that maybe I wasn't quite clear in my question:

I can find all the files I created today with the following command line:

      find ~ -type f -not -path '*/\.*' -mtime -1 -ls

I.e. all regular files not in a hidden directory, anywhere under my home 
directory, less than 24 hours old.

Is it possible for Thunar to maintain a some sort of shortcut to list 
these files in its window? Even if I have to refresh it manually that 
would be a very good start?
