    Hello,<br>
    I find a file using SpotLight and when I open all search results in Finder it gives me a list of files but doesn't give me the folder they are in. I have to click on each one of the files to find it. I tried using XtraFinder for the the same but can't find a single option to do this

    Try the freeware EasyFind. It will give you a list files that meet your search criteria and it also displays a "Where" column that shows the path to every file.

    You can also scroll down to the bottom of the results list and double click on "Show All in Finder". However, that will show every file that meets your criteria, so you'll have to look through those to find your particular file.

    If you open a new Finder window then go to the View menu and select Show Path Bar, it will give you the path at the bottom. Is that what you are after?

    No what I want is a column with the folders shown.
