How to filter search results

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Anyone know how to filter out results?

 

What I know:

 

Modifying the search scope

 

Goal:

 

Filter out certain folders including subfolders

Example: Filtering out Adobe folder located inside Application folders (Application is inside Search Scope by default)

Do you ever need to search for the contents of these Adobe folders? If you don't, you can pop open Spotlight's Privacy preferences and drag the folder there to exclude it from your Mac's results.

 

Once you've done this, type "reload" into Alfred to refresh his application cache, and you should no longer see the Adobe apps in your results :)

 

Cheers,

Vero
