A note from a reader of my recent Spotlight article asked how to make including Spotlight Items and System Files the default search settings. My response: whatever your default search settings, create them and save them as a Smart Folder. But even after that he didn't quite grasp how to use such a Smart Folder, so I made him a little movie showing what to do. Notice how, if you summon the search criteria of the saved search, they include everything including the original search term. So now you can change the search term, keeping the other settings as defaults (or possibly adding more criteria). The same point is made on p. 67 of my Leopard ebook, but the movie is more vivid. (Hmmm, maybe we should make movie versions of everything in our books!)
