MacMost Now 899: Customizing Spotlight Menu Searches

http:.// You can decide what types of files appear in the Spotlight menu when you search. You can remove types, and also re-arrange them so the ones important to you appear first. You can also hide folders from Spotlight searches to reduce your results. You can also search for a specific type of file on a case-by-case basis.

    Thanks so much Gary.
    Fantastic tips. Always bugged me about bloated search results.
    But rarely used, so too lazy to find solution.
    This really solves it though.

    Thanks for this video. I'm on a french OS. I wander what is the terme 'kind' for french because "kind" doesn't work for me.

      Good question. Next time you are near an Apple Store, I would ask.

      You might try using Google Translate and see what it comes up with for a French equivalent for Kind
