I'm on 10.9.5, up to date on everything. The world's most advanced operating software (heavy sarcasm) has a brain-dead search engine Spotlight, that does not display the path of a file that it finds. Unless you know a secret handshake - in this case you must press the Command key at the same time, to show the path - there is no intuitive way to figure out how to find the path to the stupid file you found... wow, really advanced (heavy sarcasm)! Unfortunately, the secret handshake is still not enough, because at least on my 10.9.5, the path keeps appearing and disappearing every few seconds, so if the path is really long, you have to keep looking at it for a few seconds at a time to memorize the path. Brilliant OS, Apple developers! My question: is there some way to set Spotlight preferences in such a way that every time I look for a file in Spotlight, it BY DEFAULT displays the path to the file? Because many times it is critical for me to do something to the file, and it helps me not at all to open the file - I must know where it lives and how to get to it (to f.ex. export it etc.). Or is such a thing simply not possible in the most advanced operating software in the world?
