    Yes thats exactly what comes up when i do it, but as you say in your video it brings up a lot of other files as well. When they show up can you not just drag them out of the window. I was trying to find Final Cut,and it showed up. I know your video is very basic,but i am getting on in years. In your video you make it simple,and it is.
    The problem, i am having is i just go brain dead. I wished you could fix that Gary

    My brain kicked in. I Found Final Cut straight away. It was in my external hard drive. It was the folders at the bottom that told me where it was.Thanks Gary

    Spotlight in Lion.
    I am having some issues with spotlight in Lion. In the past when you searched a file from the spotlight icon in the main menu bar you could hover your mouse over that file and see where it was located. I can’t seem to do this anymore. It’s kid of pointless when your trying to move or delete the file if you can’t find it. Any suggestions? This normally only happens on pdf and other specific files, not folders.

      Just Command+Click the item in the spotlight menu and it takes you right to the file in its folder.
