Bug Description

It is common to have a small group of files that are accessed frequently, e.g. templates, spreadsheets, project files, etc. Unfortunately the Files Lens only appears to track recently opened files. As a result the files used most often quickly get buried under other more recently used files that were a one time use item.

It would be nice if Dash/Files-Lens prioritized search results based on the frequency of use not just the immediacy of use. Even having a Most Frequently Used category similar to that provided for applications would be useful.
