    Don't know what I did or how I managed to do it but misplaced the "All Images" folder on mac. I scrolled the folder down to Docs where I clicked on it, opened it up and when I x'd out if it the folder completely disappeared. I didn't delete or trash it. Where did it go?! Help and thank-you in advance.

    It is NOT a folder, it is a saved search result of all files fulfilling the search criteria set for the search, it also known as "Smart Folder".

    Go to Finder, open Preferences (CMD+,), select Sidebar and then check if the "All Images" option is selected.

    And if it is, deselect it, or as sure is eggs is eggs, one day someone is going to say "hey I don't need these images" and delete some or all of them, not realising they are system files. And your Mac will be hosed.
