Feeling stress on finding specific file that buried inside the ton of files. Like searching a sand in the ocean. With Mac, you do not have to worry about that. Mac, just like a car, has a very powerful, very bright, and extremely smart Spotlight. Spotlight can search everything that you want. Whenever, wherever you need it, spotlight will show you the way. I mean, you can find it at every corner.
You can make yourself your own spotlight shortcut (if you have QuickSilver, you can open with
spotp). And something like this will show up. You can see there is two kind of shortcuts for spotlight.
Or if you only remember you want to search for music but you accidentally forgot the music name. You can just type kind:music. It will return all of the music you have. Just in a few seconds.
And when you use a very universal keyword to search for files, It will return somehow so many results.
When you open it from spotlight window.
Even when you open a folder and you have something to do with that folder, maybe you want to change your display. But you do not know what apps or what file you need. You can just go to that folder, for example, preferences panel. And then use your spotlight (find it at the corner) and key in, let’s say display. It will shine in the darkness.
Maybe you want to look for image and you have already inside that folder. For instance, I am at Desktop Pictures folder and I want to view image named “Dandelion” inside Plants folder. Just spot it.
You have a text file. You forget the name. But you remember, inside your text file you have a word display. Spotlight finds it for you.
Display has nothing to do with title : Mac Spotlight : Brighter your Day, but the spotlight can spot it. There are many ways to use your spotlight. And the result always return to you in no time.
