Mac OS X: Opening Spotlight Results in Finder

I use Spotlight all of the time. I love it more than I love coffee. OK, I’m completely lying on that one, mostly because I wouldn’t go crazy and kill you all if someone took Spotlight away from me. But I do love it.


My sleep-addled brain made me do this.


However, one of the behaviors that I find frustrating is that clicking on an item from within the Spotlight search window automatically opens it when I’d much rather show that item’s location in the Finder. Luckily, though, if you simply hold down the Command key before you click on a search result in Spotlight, the file will show in the Finder rather than opening. And because I know that, I need a little less mayhem-preventing coffee.
