How do I configure Calibre to start with a Saved Search?

I would like to configure my wife's copy of Calibre to display a saved search result when it starts so that only her books are displayed. She isn't computer savvy so the easier I can make her library management, the better for both of us.

We share a library, and I'm not concerned how it displays on my computer. Is it possible, though, to set Calibre on her computer so that it automatically defaults to a saved search result upon opening?

Type the search in the search bar as per normal
Give it a name in the "Saved Searches" dropdown on the right-hand side
Click the green + to save that as a named search
Go to Preferences -> Behaviour
Where it says "Restriction to apply when the current library is opened" set this to be your saved search.

EDIT: Chaley gazumped me.

Only someone who has bought a house in England can understand the term "gazumped". What an insane system.

Insane and totally unfair dude, so much for "a deal is a deal". Certainly we don't have such a scheme in NZ or Aus thankfully.
