10.7: Remove the Developer category from Spotlight results
Authored by: gopes on Aug 27, '11 06:52:15PM

Is this different than just unchecking the category in "Search Results" in the Spotlight prefPane? I did that, and I still get, for example, Dashcode (which I wouldn't if I added /Developer to the Privacy tab, as the first poster suggested), but I no longer get a particular .js file that showed up, in the Developer category, before unticking the box.

10.7: Remove the Developer category from Spotlight results

I do have one. I just checked on my friend's MBAir, who also has Xcode installed, and he doesn't have it. I should have checked his before I posted, because I guess this is a new entry in 10.7.2. Something to look forward to! ;)

Edit:
P.S. Since my friend has Xcode installed, and has 10.7.1, I don't think the previous poster is correct about Xcode installation adding the category...
