When I open the Trash on Mac, it's usually because I'm looking for a specific file that I deleted.
I'll search for the file name (or part of it)... and then the Mac returns every file in the file system that matches, by default, on "This Mac". I have to click Trash in order to find the file in the Trash, every time.
What's the UX reason that search isn't scoped to the Trash by default, when there's already an easy-to-access global search (command-F)? Doesn't this violate the User Control heuristic?
