    As of lately, I'm finding myself using spotlight for just about everything. One thing I've found that spotlight does not want to do by default, is open the trash folder.

    Tried making a symbolic link of the ~/.Trash folder to the desktop, but spotlight could not find it.

    So next I made a script to tell finder to open the trash folder, and saved it in my user directory. I name the script "trash", so now when I type "trash" in spotlight, it finds the script, which in turns tells finder to open the trash folder.

    This seems more complicated than it should be, so I was wondering how everyone else went about opening the trash folder in spotlight?

    We don't. If it was built into the basic OS, it wouldn't be difficult.
