Sherlock

With the introduction of Sherlock in Mac OS 8.5, Apple applied its engineering abilities to make it easy to find items using your Mac—whether that meant searching for a specific file, a word or phrase inside a file, or even information on the Internet. Sherlock is the answer to all of that—you can use it to look for just about anything.

Opening Sherlock

To launch Sherlock, with the Finder active choose Find from the File menu (). (In Mac OS 9 and earlier, you can also choose Sherlock 2 from the Apple menu; in Mac OS X, click the Sherlock icon in the Dock.) The Sherlock window is divided into four major parts: Channels, search controls, a volume or plug-in list, and a summary information area (Figure 3.34).
