Every layout in your file is based on a table occurrence. That's what we call the "boxes" in your relationship graph. Every table occurrence has exactly one found set for a given window open in your solution. One found set, one current record, one sort order. If you have multiple layouts based on the same table occurrence, each will share that found set, current record and sort order. Open a new window and select a layout and you get a set of found sets independent from those in the first window. Take a table occurrence box, duplicate it and base a layout on it and you also get a found set independent of that seen on layouts based on the original table occurrence and this time you have them in the same window.
But since you are new to FileMaker, you might first explain in more detail what you are trying to do. You could, for example get a single found set of all records with a specified name AND a specified age. you can also get a single found set of records of all records with a specified name OR a specified age. If you want either of those, you don't need extra windows nor extra table occurrences, you just need to correctly set up the criteria for your find.
To do an "and" find, set all the needed search criteria into the appropriate fields then perform the find. It sounds like you are doing 4 separate finds, which would of course supersede any previous find results.
