    Open System Preferences and start searching. The way it handles it is good to look at.

    What? :confused:

    I'm sorry, could you provide more details as to what you're talking about?

    EDIT: Oh, I see.. yes, old news, as PoD posted.

    I assume he's just talking about the little "spotlight" effect you get that highlights relevant preference panes as your type in the search box...

    No problem.. chances are there's plenty of folks who actually don't know about it and they might come across this thread.

    Wow, well Microsoft is making a huge deal out of search with Vista, and I think that adding it into System Preferences is a terrific addition to an otherwise mediocre Apple Help.

    Search is extremely important to a lot of people; I refuse to use Finder, for example, and instead just use Spotlight to find files I need.

    Coolest feature of Spotlight for me? Definitely it's ability to search emails - I use that more than anything.
