Macintosh OS/SPOTLIGHT MYSTERY
QUESTION: I cannot find a folder I have,( containing jpeg files)\
SPOTLIGHT shows it in the little window, but doesn't tell me where the folder is located so I can retrieve it manually.
I can drag/ drop from the spotlight window to the desktop, which will copy that folder.
But I cannot locate the darn folder. I rebooted computer. No dice ! How can A folder become invisible to me, but not to
When you select the file - go to the file menu and choose "Reveal in Folder" or CMD-R
---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------
I followed your instruction. In the FILE menu, there is no choice called REVEAL IN FOLDER. I can snapshot that drop menu if you need evidence.
The ' copied' graphics folder is now available to me, but the original, from which the copy was made, is still non existent.
Since making a desktop copy, SPOTLIGHT no longer sees the original.
Is this logical, or am I simply a user/ dolt ?
I really cannot determine this.
But I promise you this, the GRAPHICS folder on my desktop was copied from the window of SPOTLIGHT. I even gave the copy a different name. So, Spotlight should reveal the
original, and the copy.
Am I being logical ?
I must suspect that this mystery must seem trivial to a techhead like yourself ?
When I contacted you 2 weeks ago, cuz the computer kept shutting itself off, well,that behaviour simply ceased one day. I did nothing to induce the change.
So I could become superstitious, almost ! YIKES !
I'm not sure - if spotlight isn't showing both, then there is only the "copied" set.
Try a different search, click on a file and hit CMD-R.
The only possibility on why CMD-R doesn't work/isn't there, would be that you're running a much older version of the OS.
