The Find Command

Mac OS X's Find command also works with the Search field, but it automatically offers additional search options (Figure 4 ):

    Search locations appear as buttons beneath the Search field. Click a button to search just that location. By default, four buttons appear:

      Servers are network volumes your computer is connected to.

      Computer is the top level of your computer, which includes all hard disks and inserted media.

      Home is your Home folder.

      Others enables you to select specific locations.

    Criteria filters appear as pop-up menus (Figure 5 ) in rows above the search results area. You can set options with these filters to narrow down the search results. There are several basic categories of criteria filters:

      Kind is the type of item.

      Last Opened is the date the item was last opened.

      Last Modified is the date the item was last changed.

      Created is the date the item was created.

      Keywords are keywords associated with the item.

      Color Label is the label assigned to the item.

      Name is the item's name.

      Contents is the contents of the item.

      Size is the size of the item.

      Other enables you to set more advanced criteria filter options.

    Figure 5. There are several categories of Criteria filters.

    You can perform any combination of steps 3 through 5. Each step you perform adds criteria that narrows the search results.

    The search results must match all search criteria specified in steps 3 through 5.

    To add additional criteria filters, click the Add (+) button at the right end of a criteria row.

    To remove a criteria filter, click the Remove () button at the right end of its row.

    Clicking the Save button near the top of the New Search window creates a smart folder. I tell you about smart folders a little later in this chapter.

To set specific search locations


Near the top of the New Search (Figure 4 ) or Searching (Figure 7 ) window, click the Others button. A Search in dialog sheet appears (Figure 8 ).

Figure 8. The Search in dialog sheet lists specific locations you can search.


To add a location to the list, click the + button at the bottom of the list, use the Choopse a File dialog that appears (Figure 9 ) to locate, select, and choose a folder or volume. The location you selected appears in the list (Figure 10 ).

Figure 9. Use the Choose a Folder dialog to add a folder or volume to the Search in dialog.

Figure 10. The location you added appears in the list.


To remove a location from the list, select the location and click the button at the bottom of the list. The location you selected is removed from the list.


Toggle the check boxes beside locations to indicate which locations should be searched.


Click OK. The location buttons change to indicate the number of other places to be searched (Figure 11 ).
