I'm practicing creating Smart Folders and they appear in Favorites.
I understand they display the results of searches and are not real folders, but they still represent extra work the OS has to do, so if during my practice I create 100 "test" Smart Folders I will like to make sure that I can delete these searches when they are no longer needed.
Question: How to delete or remove the macOS Smart Folder searches when I no longer need them? I'm not just asking how to make them disappear, I'd like to be sure the underlying search process stops as well.
Right now I just grabbed one In Finder's Favorites and tried to drag it to the desktop but it seems to have disappeared, at least I can't find it. But is the underlying search also gone? Can do this many times and be sure that I'm not building up a long list of searches?
- https://support.apple.com/en-nz/guide/mac-help/mchlp2804/10.15/mac/10.15 explains how to create them, but not how to make them go away when they are no longer needed.
