Navigate the spotlight search in OS X


Spotlight is the search routine provided by Apple with OS X that allows you to find documents, folders and items on your system by name or by relevant content. But, sometimes the search results may become a bit large. To manage this, you can enable or disable categories in the Spotlight System Preferences or you can rearrange them to keep the most commonly used in an accessible location.


After doing such customizations, you may still face problems of long search results. In such situation, you want to navigate the search results fast. Here is the solution.
Apple is supporting two options for navigating search results quickly. For using this, search with your keywords first and then do the following tasks:
·         Jump between categories- By holding the Command key, you can press up or down arrows.
·         Jump to the beginning or end: By holding the Control key, press up or down arrows on your keyboard.
Although you can think that mouse is the fastest way to access some of the items yet, keyboard users may find this option convenient.
