Finder search in current folder *only*?

I use the finder search (not Sherlock) function a lot and have noticed something... annoying:

On my work Mac the search field only looks in the current folder downwards, and displays the search criteria actively... However, on my new home Mini the search function seems to automatically start searching from the Macintosh HD down, displaying every single match on the system.

Is there a way to set the finder search to look in the current folder only?

TIA Lee
QUOTE Thanks
