Spotlight inefficient and frustrating for me
Authored by: Clint MacDonald on Aug 11, '05 12:56:01PM
Unfortunately, Spotlight rarely orders the files I want so that the one I want is in the Top Hits list. For instance, I wanted to find a PDF of a file I reference very, very often. Because I refer to this file so often in written documents, if I type the exact filename into the Spotlight window, the file is never in the top set of hits. By the time I click "Show All" and click on the reveal triangles, I could have navigated the Finder hierarchy more easily. I would very much like Spotlight to "learn" files to which I commonly refer and move them to the top of the list.
