Spotlight on your mac is a great feature and one that seems to be underutilized by many! If you’ve ever saved a file but aren’t sure where you saved it, jump into Spotlight. Ever cleaned off your desktop and now two months later you need a file but can’t remember where you put it? Jump into Spotlight. Sometimes when you download something you have no idea where it went; Spotlight can help you find it. Spotlight can help you find files, folders, applications, emails, calendar events, movies, images, and more. You can search by title, keywords, or even specific file type. Find a definition without opening the Dictionary application with Spotlight and even do math computations without the Calculator! This screencast can show you how Spotlight can help you with all of these things and more. Hopefully it will encourage you to take advantage of this great feature on your Mac.
