2.15. Smart Folders

Once you've grown comfortable with the layout of the Search dialog box, you may notice the little Save button in the upper-right corner. That button generates a smart folder—a self-updating folder that, in essence, performs a continual, 24-hour search for the criteria you specify. It's amazingly useful, and totally without precedent in the Windows world.
