Perhaps I was not very clear. Suppose I am searching for a file and
would like to look in say usr. I could start in the palces menu select
Search for files and then ask for the search to be in usr or elsewhere,
Now the choicw appears to be limited. However I think I have found a
way. select to look in other in the drop down menu and then click twice
on the left pointing arrow at the top left of the window which opens. Lo
and beholdd the list appears.
