    When Snow Leopard first came out I modded my menu bar to make it black with white text and icons. Well just now I've decided to revert back, and I located the menu bar icons and restored them with the backups I had, except for one.

    In order for you to restore the Spotlight icon, you have to dig in the contents of Spotlight.app

    However, I can't seem to find it. Originally its supposed to be located under:

    System/Library/CoreServices

    But Spotlight.app is nowhere to be found there. Can somebody please help me find out where its at so I can finally be fully restored? Thanks for anybodies help.

    It's here, unless you've moved it:

    Search in Finder, using the options indicated above.

    Just found the solution on Google. Its funny, I've been googling for about 20 minutes, posted to here, then googled one more time and found it.

    Its under 'System/Library/CoreServices/Search.bundle' for those who's Spotlight.app doesn't show under /CoreServices anymore.

    Thanks though,

    Rock on:apple:

    Glad you found it, but it must be rather embarrassing, not knowing where it was, with you being Steve Jobs! :eek:
