    DON'T DO THAT! OS X uses images, not to mention all your applications. If you want to get rid of a lot of images, go into your pictures folder (located at [username] -> Pictures) and delete stuff from there.

    Not Windows, doing that is highly ill advised.

    Of course, if you delete those Applications, it will delete them from your computer. Why would you want to do that?

    i think Apple could have implemented those smart folders better under "Seach for" by using aliases, or links with out the alias arrow, so newbies dont delete all their files thinking its just a list like in Recent Items.

    OP, if you don't want those "search for" items in your finder, got to Finder > Preferences > Sidebar and uncheck the boxes for the "search for" items.
