Search the trash when searching everywhere
Authored by: abriening on Dec 22, '03 08:10:54PM

The Finder follows the files in the Search Results window. With the Search Results window open, drag your testxyz folder into the trash then empty the trash. If the folder is selected in the Search Results window it will disappear immediately otherwise, click on the file in the Search Results window and --poof-- it disappears.

Almost like rm-ing files in the Terminal, they don't disappear if their folder is open in the background till you click on the window and the Finder updates the .DS_Store.
