    ok, so if you go to Finder's side bar, there are 3 categories right

    "Devices", "Places" and "Search For"

    so

    i accidentally remove the folder "All Videos" and "All Documents" on the "Search For" category, leaving only the "All Images" folder

    the problem is, how do i restore it?

    i accidentally dragged it out of the sidebar and poof, its gone

    now originally, there were supposed to be 3 folders on the "Search For" column, and fortunately, i didn't remove the "All Images" folder

    and i tried to get the info of it's Location

    and says it's on /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/CannedSearch

    but i cant find Finder.app on CoreServices folder

    because i assume they are on the same destination?

    anyone?

    thanks

    1. Create a new search
    2. Click +
    3. Set type to Movies
    4. Clear the search name
    5. Save
    6. Name it whatever you want
    7. Repeat 1-6 for different types

    There is another way of restoring it. Just go to settings menu of Finder and in this window choose side bar (or something similar, the third icon). There you can check and uncheck elements which should appear in your Finder sidebar (like for example the three All * searches)
