Alt+Enter Search with Spotlight opens Finder search instead [Improved in 4.0.8 b1133 pre-release]


Recommended Posts

Hi! In the preferences there is an option given `Search with Spotlight`. I tried this now on two different machines and in both cases it opens a Finder search instead of an Spotlight search.

I am on the latest versions (4.0.7 and macOS Catalina)

That is the expected behaviour. I suppose it's a bit confusing nowadays, as Spotlight now does other things than search files, but historically Finder's search and Spotlight were basically the same thing.

 

The name should probably be changed to "Search for ‘xyz’ in Finder".
