    searching for files with specific extension
    I would like to search my entire iMac for files with a specific extension (thumbs.db, from Windows) and delete them. How can I do this?

    thanks, Kevin

    Click on "Kind" arrow, select "Other"

    Go down the list to "File extension" and check the box

    The rest is intuitive
