    If spotlight is now the way to search for things in Tiger what is Apple-F supposed to be? a Spotlight light?

    I've just upgraded to 10.4 and am a little confused by this

    Thanks

    Apple-F opens the search facility in whichever App you happen to be using at the time. Spotlight is a system wide search tool. In Finder, Apple-F works in much the same way as Spotlight, but in other Apps it may work completely differently.

    Sorry I was referring to the Apple-F in the finder, I don't suppose there is any way of making Apple-F open Spotlight as well as Apple-Space. Like I said I'm new to Tiger and forget spotlights there half the time!

    The Find feature in Finder (alliteration ahoy! :)) uses Spotlight internally. In other words, you'll be using Spotlight regardless of how you access it.
