Open the PFX tab for .PFX files.
Click Yes.

Searching certificates

The Certificate Search feature enables you to search for certificates in three different sources: computers managed by Active Administrator, certificate stores in selected computers, and the Certificate Repository. The New Certificate Search wizard helps you easily create a search based on multiple search values and criteria. You can save, edit, and delete certificate search definitions.

To filter the list by certificate name, start typing in the Filter Certificates Names box. The list filters as you type.

If you choose to save the temporary search definition, click Edit, and advance the wizard to the page where you can enter a name for the search definition.
Click Next.
