    Default Too much Spotlight

    Guys,

    How do I get Spotlight to stop Spotlight (in the Finder) displaying all my Safari history and source code files?

    Cheers,
    Ricky.

    System Preferences > Spotlight

    tick/untick what you want shown. check the privacy tab for hiding your pron.

    Yes - that works for the Spotlight menu. But I'm talking about the search within the Finder itself.

    LOL. I'm only 16...so no need ti worry about a prying wife!

    It just shits me rummaging through things like Safari History and Java source code etc when I'm just searching for a document.
