I want to limit the search to a folder and sub-folders. How do I do this on Finder?

Also, two word searches and way better than one. How?

I use Agent Ransack on Windows and love it. What can you recommend for Mac El Capitan? 10.11.6.

Thanks.

Open a folder in Finder and type Command-F. This will open a search window for that folder and subfolders only.

No, I still get files outside that folder clogging up the search list.

Underneath the search box, you have the choice of "search this Mac" or "Search Foldername". Make sure you have clicked on "search Foldername".

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks, I totally missed that.

What about searching on two words?
