Outlook 2010 - Filter e-mails between specific dates

Sounds to be much simpler than it should be (tbh only really searched for a few minutes), but...
Say you want to filter your emails between dates?
Atm, a specific date was easy enough, but between dates seemed more hassle and the only way I could see was to create a new search filter.
Under "Search" tab, search Tools -> Advanced Find, then "Advanced" tab - and under Define more criteria dropdown select "Date/Time Fields" -> "Received", Condition to "Between", and Value to "<start Date> and  <end Date>" then under "Browse", make sure you check "Include Subfolders", then "Find Now".
It was a pain in the ass, and would love to hear a simpler way of doing it...
