Spotlight Tricks

We all know we can use Spotlight to locate items on our computers. Just click on the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, type in the name or information about the file we want to find, and Spotlight will locate it on our hard drive.

But did you know there are other features of Spotlight?

Spotlight provides a direct link to your Dictionary and your Calculator.

If you want the definition of word, just type that word into Spotlight. Then click on the Dictionary result for the full definition.

Likewise, if you type a calculation into the Spotlight field, the result will pop right up in the Calculator result.
