Smart Folders, folders that contain the results of a Finder search, typically display without the original search criteria listed. However, you can see the search criteria by selecting Show Search Criteria from the window's Action menu (the gear icon). Additionally, any edits to a smart folder's criteria will automatically be listed the next time you open the folder.

Send Article to a Friend

QuicKeys Revs for Mac OS 8 -- After installing Mac OS 8, QuicKeys users have encountered problems with installed contextual menu commands not appearing on menus and with the Close Window and Zoom Window Mousies failing. Although CE Software provided workarounds that helped with these issues to varying degrees, a fix is now at hand in the form of the QuicKeys 3.5.2r1 updater, which corrects these problems in QuicKeys 3.5.2. CE's download page links to the new updater and to software for updating 3.5 to 3.5.2. [TJE]
