    How do I set it that in a Finder window, when I search for something, it searches within the folder I am viewing first instead of my whole drive? I'm tired of clicking over from "This Mac" to "Documents" whenever I just want to search through just my documents.

    For Documents: Select Documents folder > command f
    Works with any folder.
    Have fun
