ARGH! Windows 7 Search
My frustration quota has been met already this morning. HOW DO I SEARCH FOR FILES BY LAST ACCESSED IN WINDOWS 7.
Sorry to shout but the fact I couldn't figure it out, then failed to articulate that question in a google search query has driven to humiliate myself here.

I find the W7 search very unreliable and counter-intuative, especially if you are searching for content within a file. IMO the XP search was far superior. I either use Super Finder XT, if I want something with a GUI or I have implementations of the Unix commands find & grep written for Windows which work for me.

This will change the menu bar from:
You can then click View, Choose Details to select which columns are shown [including Date Accessed]:
