    Dashboard queries are not tied to any saved searches. These are separate, so what you need to do is:

    1.) Launch the dashboard

    2.) Click on a monitor to open the monitor query in the search

    3.) Edit the monitor query

    4.) Select the option in the new query result to "Save Back to Monitor." This option is in the toolbar and looks like the following

     

    You need to be aware that updates to monitor queries will refresh the monitor window and the monitor will have to reload. For this reason, I would suggest copying the dashboard first and then make the monitor query changes in the new dashboard. Once the new dashboard monitors are fully loaded you can delete the old dashboard. This way you can still reference the data that was previously added to the original dashboard.
