Search the trash when searching everywhere

Tis true. By default, Finder's Find doesn't search the /System or /Library folders, even if "everywhere" is selected.

Are you sure?

On mine, although /System is excluded from Everywhere, /Library and ~/Library are not. 10.3.9

I think choosing Search in: Everywhere is the same as choosing Specific places and putting in all the volumes currently mounted. /System and invisible files/folders including the trash are still excluded, unless you add /System to the specific places list, and add the visibility condition and set it to visible and invisible.
