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" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>((_kMDItemGroupId &gt; 6))</string>

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.
