By default, Spotlight, the search engine in the Mac Finder, will search by content, giving you all sorts of results you don’t want, even if you know the name of the file you are looking for. To search by file name, you need to switch from Contents to File Name in the Spotlight toolbar. But by using Command+Shift+F instead of just Command+F you can bring up a search window that looks for file names by default.
