Unfortunately, you can't do this with filter.

However, you can create a bookmark with the date created sort order.

There is the -path <path> command line option, but like you said you want an empty search edit, which currently there is no option to do that.

I do have plans to add a command line option to limit the search to a specified directory, without polluting the search edit.

Yes that will be good...I use the context menu only when I want to limit the search to certain folder,but adding the path to the search field takes too much space.
