Hi - boping the brains-trust of the forum can help with this query. It sees my spotlight on Leopard (10.5.1) doesn't look/ search all my files. For example, i wanted to find the jpeg file for the grass desktop background, a file named 'Grass Blades'. If I search 'Grass Blades' it doesn't appear in the search results - in fact nothing does. I can however, hunt through my Library directory and find the file. Why does it not search certain files and why when checking the settings are the no options to expand the search criteria to what I can only assume are 'system folders'??
