How do I search a specific folder?
When I press command-option-spacebar to open up a search window, I want to search a specific folder for all documents that are PDF. How do I search just that folder, not "This Mac" or "mdub" (my home directory)? Either option returns a LOT more files than what is relevant to me?

The "Apple (Command) + Spacebar" keyboard shortcut will open the Spotlight Search. Hit the shortcut and start typing. It auto fills and gives you the options to open a search window from the first result.
Sorry I had the wrong answer. You were asking for a folder specific search.
I have a question that is related to this: How do you have the search automatically search the folder you are already in? I do a lot of folder specific searches and it is tedious to have to select the folder instead of the whole Mac every time. Does that make sense?
