Tabs in search result list to filter for file types

SIB is great and I am a long time user since Windows 8 came out, I can't go without this tool. When searching for files all the results are shown in one list. It would be very handy if on top of the list above all the search results there would be icons (image-icon, document-icon, music icon etc.) to filter the search results by file type: Clicking on the image icon for example would only show image files in the search result list, clicking on the music icon would only show music files in the search result list and so on. This is how the native built-in windows search windows allows for filtering search results and I find this very practical: - easier to find the file type wanted - filtering by type would show more wanted results in the search result list, because the unwanted files are excluded from the search result list and make room for the wanted results
