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.

      Figure 4. Choosing the Find command displays a New Search window with additional options.

  • 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.
