Re: Using Spotlight to search for .prefPane...

Spotlight can't find it but locate can. First, manually update the locate database
sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb
Next, find the prefsPane
locate *.prefPane
- the * indicates a wildcard and will search for any files that have .prefPane appended to the end.

Now, how exactly do I make Spotlight index my entire HD and not evade the Library and System folders?
