How to search for shortcuts (Windows)

Hi,

how can I search only for shortcuts on my Win10 system?
I tried to use *.Ink in the file name folder, but my shortcuts were not found.

I could imagine to setup a Persistent Search Filter with my own File Name preset, where I define something like "shortcuts only". but I don't have these filter special options:

How may I get this special select combo box between file name filter and case sensitive button?

In your screenshot it looks like you have used Ink instead of lnk. Try this:

File name: *.lnk

Thanks for this hint, that was the reason.
Oh my god, how stupid am I? Sorry for the question.
