Your question is a bit all over the place.
All I can say is that "All Documents" is likely to be under "Search For" (ie. it is a Smart Folder) in Finder. These SF's have ALL your documents in them regardless of where they are stored on your machine (except those in your Trash).
The same is true of "All Images"/"All Movies"/"All Music". For example with the music one; ANY music (audio filetype) stored on your machine should be listed in that Smart Folder.
You don't drag items into it at all, as it is not a *real* folder that can be found under a location on your machine, but rather a virtual folder that just lists filetypes of the same subject (eg. audio ones) all together, for easy finding of a file you perhaps cannot remember where you have put it before.
Thank you for your help. Yes, I know the "All Documents" is there and what they do, but I have lots of things in "All Documents" that came in emails (jpegs etc), and I thought I would drag some off to the trash just to make more room on computer (cleaning). When I started to empty trash I saw some items I think should be left in "All Documents," so I stored them in 'Documents.' I looked in "All Documents" and they are in there also (and in 'Documents'). I don't want them in 'Documents' but when I drag them to the trash from 'Documents,' they disappear from "All Documents" also, so I put them back into 'Documents' and they automatically go back into "All Documents". I just want to get them out of my 'Documents' folder but want them to stay in "All Documents".
Thank you, Arudi
