Hey there @gabybruna,
 
If I understand correctly, you are looking for a way to see all your locally synced files in one place, is that correct?
 
Currently this isn’t a feature we offer, to be able to search or display only locally synced files. However, should your folder have only locally synced files, the folder will show the green circle with a white tick icon. If there is a mix of local and online only files, the folder will show a white circle with a green tick (icons shown below respectively, also see this article here for more info).

Hope this helps, let me know if I've misunderstood at all - Cheers!
