1) In advanced search, I would like to have a preferences choice to place the list of found files at the bottom of the window, instead of on the left side as now. That will allow the complete file addresses to be included in the view, without having to scroll sideways.

On first read, I thought I'd concur. But looking it it some more, I think you'll need to associate the path with the file name. One way would be to display the complete path including file name. A little messy I think. And the window would be larger. My preference would be to place the path below the file name with a little offset for display clarity. Or different colours for filename and path. We'll likely have a smaller window, but would not necessarily prevent the need for scrolling. See screenie=option

Would there still be need for an additional window?

2) In preferences, I would like an additional option on setting the default 'Where to search'. I have found that I mostly search for files in System files or All files, not in Personal files which is default.

Are you saying that you want to avoid clicking the All Files radio button?

Well, yes, and yes. Both issues were answered by Zigbert, and I achieved what I asked for, see the image below.
But I discovered that I have another problem, but not with pFind. I was given a HP 22" widescreen monitor when my old 15" Dell gave in 3 days ago, and I just attached the new monitor, without rebooting/restarting the live CD. I have discovered that when I resize a window, the X/Y measurments belong to the old screen, not the new one! Very confusing! Confused
Oh, and I used the expression file addresses, it should have been paths.

Hi zigbert, thank you so much for your dedication with pFind. Over 10 years now!! Absolutely my most regularly-used application in the Puppyverse. I wonder whether it may be feasible to add a "find duplicates" module or component into pFind? Sometimes when I'm perusing the advanced features for specialised searches I'm surprised that it isn't there. Perhaps it's a logistical nightmare. Anyway I just thought I'd ask,
Best Wishes

I made a debian package of pfind 6.3
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=971218#971218
for stretch dog linux

I wasn't able to find an icon for the desktop file Sad
/usr/share/pixmaps/puppy/find.svg
You should put it inside.

Add another application to open up files.
