Spotlight or some other way!

  • So...

    First let me say that the members of this list are pretty cool. I have to say that I don't think I would have enjoyed the success I have had so far without those here who take the time to help. I hope to one day to be of value to someone else who needs help.

    Let me ask a question ...

    I wish to find a group of files that the user could have placed anywhere on their computer. These files all have the same extension--the question is--what is the best way (and has anyone cobbled code together) to hunt down files? What is the "right" way to do this?

    This is a job for Spotlight. I think this would be pretty easy to do
    once you read up on the basics:
