Anyone know how to get OSX Mountain Lion Finder search to include folders in the search results?


When performing a search using the Finder's search box, folders are never included in the results,

but when I use Spotlight, it shows the folders just fine. Evidence: screenshot below.



Hopefully this one won't get censored by moderators. I've had that happen a lot lately when posting

Mountain Lion bugs.....Thanks!
