Set what is searched in a Finder Window on the Mac

Did you know you could set what your Mac searched by default in a Finder window? Apple sets this to search your Mac, when what you want to do is search the Finder widow you have open. You can set it to search your current folder instead of the Mac in the Finder Preferences. See how to set what a Mac searched when performing a search in a finder window in this video.
