10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window
Authored by: kickingfog on Oct 28, '11 05:25:28PM

I found this info that I like for the default_smart.plist. It makes "Name" active, not "Content" when you use command-F. Plus the cursor is active for typing. If you want "content" you can use command-option-shift to open a Spotlight search window. This seems to work for 10.6 as well.

Here is the text:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>CompatibleVersion</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>RawQuery</key>
<string>((_kMDItemGroupId &gt; 6))</string>
<key>SearchCriteria</key>
<dict>
<key>CurrentFolderPath</key>
<string>/</string>
<key>FXCriteriaSlices</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>criteria</key>
<array>
<string>kMDItemKind</string>
<integer>300</integer>
<integer>400</integer>
</array>
<key>displayValues</key>
<array>
<string>Kind</string>
<string>is</string>
<string>any</string>
</array>
<key>rowType</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>subrows</key>
<array/>
</dict>
</array>
<key>FXScope</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>FXScopeArrayOfPaths</key>
<array>
<string>kMDQueryScopeComputer</string>
</array>
<key>SearchNameOnly</key>
<true/>
</dict>
<key>Version</key>
<string>10.4</string>
</dict>
</plist>


I hope the formating came through correctly. I've been looking for this simple fix for a long time. You can see, near the end of the text, is where it adds SearchNameOnly.
