Identify YOUR OWN purpose with Spotlight
Authored by: peterrosen on Mar 15, '08 12:54:13PM

I spend countless hours at the Mac. Sometimes, I even get things accomplished before being taken off focus by surfing, IM, email response, etc. So to see where all my time goes, I thought to look via Spotlight. I opened spotlight preferences and set it to look at the last week, by date. Then I typed a single period (.) into the search field and waited. Out popped a neatly organized list of my work and toggling between applications (and discovery of where diverse attention goes). So I can now clearly see where most of my time goes, but I have a problem you might help me with?

I can't find a way to print out the results of this search that show the icons, name of file or application, the date and time. There is NO printing resource. Dragging onto STICKIES just broke Stickies (I selected alias when asked if I am sure I want to copy the items), and then tried TextEdit which listed the files in a flash, but nothing else. Is there a way to do a screen capture of the whole window (which is several miles long LOL), or at least get the whole enchilada as desired?

TIA,
Peter
