    Where is the button for searching by matching the name instead of content?

    When I search something now, I got a lot of useless results which I'm not looking for, I just want the file.

    The solution I have found is simply using the "+" and then select name & match and then put my search entry again in the box that appears.

    However, this is not a workable solution for me because in SL, this was just done with the push of a button.

    How can i make it like SL?

    I use Find Any File. It locates the files I want far more quickly than does wrestling with Spotlight.

    So the Search of Finder ( Lion ) is worse than that of SL? :confused:

    Bump

    Still looking for an easy solution to search for name only instead of content that gives me a lot of useless search results. In SL there was just 1 button to click, can't find it in Lion.

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but try this: if you type something in the Finder's search box, and press the DOWN arrow key on your keyboard, it will bring up a menu where you can choose "Filename contains...".
