To create a new search folder, click File \ New \ Search Folder, or you can use the Ctrl+Shift+P shortcut key.

Desks, Where Creativity Goes To Die Along with many thousands of others, I attended SXSW this month. And while there, I learned some important lessons (other than “exercise patience while waiting in line, AGAIN,” and “don’t eat barbecue every meal for 5 days.”). These lessons came from the panels I attended, but they were not from anything said within the panels. Rather, they had to do with what I discovered about the types of content I should be seeking.
