Use the Other Search Option in the Finder to See an Extensive List of Effective Search Attributes

It’s easy enough to find a file on Mac using Spotlight, but unless you were looking for something very specific, you probably never bothered to click the Other tab in the Finder’s search bar. Six Colors reminds us how powerful this search parameter is.

Search in Finder, then click the + sign below the save bar. Once you’re there, tap the three-line icon and tap “Other …”. You’ll find a huge list of attributes to help narrow your search, including incredibly specific things like aperture value in a photo, sample audio file speed, whether red-eye correction is turned off, and more. It’s a powerful set of search options, and it’s so hidden you might not even have noticed it.
