Whether you search for items with a Finder window’s search field (Figure 1), the Find command and New Search window (Figure 4), smart folders (Figure 12), or Spotlight (Figure 19), you will eventually wind up with a list of found items. Figures 2, 11, 16, and 21 show examples. Here’s what you can do with these lists.
In addition to the tasks listed here, you can also use available Finder menu commands on any selected item in a list of found items.
In the list of found items, double-click the item you want to open.
In the list of found items, select the item. Its location on disk appears at the bottom of the window (Figure 22).
