Finder Search Default

Sick of always having to change your Finder searches from the current folder to search your entire Mac? You can set this default in Finder, Preferences, Advanced. You can choose Search this Mac or Use the Previous Search Scope instead of Search the Current Folder. You can still change it for individual searches after you set the default.

    “You can still change it for individual searches after you set the default.”
    What exactly do you mean? Do I have to go back to Preferences each time?
    Thanks in advance,

    Robert: When you do a search you can change the search scope at the top of the Finder window. Look for those buttons. So whatever your default, you can change the scope each time.
