Windows 8 File Explorer search tools disappear when viewing temporary internet files

Windows 8 file explorer search tools disappear when viewing temporary internet files created by Internet Explorer 10.

I.e. when viewing MyName > AppData > Local > Microsoft > Windows > Temporary Internet Files.

The search tools are available when viewing other folders, but when I view the  Temporary Internet Files folder the search tools disappear.

 

This is a problem because I cannot see and delete some cookies that I know are in the Temporary Internet Files folder.

 

Any ideas on how to get back my search tools?
