OK So this is my issue. I wanna search for a certain file, so I type the name, or a few words of the name in spotlight. It automatically searches for all instances of what I typed not just in the name of all documents but in the content too. I didn't ask for this. It annoys me greatly. Is there a way to only search the name of a file from spotlight as default? My next issue: once the file is found, i wanna open up the containing folder. Right click doesn't allow this so i click show all which opens it up in finder. It then take ages and often beach balls on me. The file I wanted pops up at the top, but it will continue to search through the contents of the whole damn computer and beach balling all the way through. Is there not a way to stop it searching if it has found what you want? another issue: From a finder window, the search bar gives you no options on first search. so when you search for a word, again, by default it searches for that instance of the word in the contents of documents. Not only that, it searches the whole computer by default, even if you open up the finder window in the folder you want, further getting on my nerves. I feel embarrassed to say this but the truth is, windows is better than this! How can I stop from killing myself out of frustration over this issue? I know there is a program that allows you to enter things in spotlight and waits till you finish typing before it searches, but I don't know/remember what it is called. Any other solutions. Yours Frustratingly.
