Well, it's not pretty, but it's easy so I wrote it and here it is:

This is a HACK.  It is not meant to be an example of good code.

(let ((*warn-if-redefine* nil))
  (defobfun (menu-item-action (ask *tools-menu* (find-menu-item "search
files"))) ()
    (ask (find-window "Search Files")
      (ask (current-editable-text)
        (set-dialog-item-text "HARD DRIVE;*.lisp")
) ) ) )
