Change Spotlight settings The Spotlight System Preferences pane enables you to define the kind of results that appear in Spotlight, along with the content Apple’s search system happens to index. You can also amend the shortcuts used for Spotlight, by clicking ‘Keyboard Shortcuts…’, which takes you to the Shortcuts tab in the Keyboard pane within System Preferences. (Note that when changing shortcuts for Spotlight, ensure your choices do not clash with commonly used shortcuts elsewhere. You’re most likely to need to amend the Spotlight shortcuts if you often work with multiple languages. Cmd+Space is also used by default to switch input sources.) It’s no longer possible to reorder search results categories. Spotlight alone now determines relevance. However, you can still omit entire categories by unchecking their checkboxes. Note that some options require an internet connection. For example, if you’re not online, you won’t be getting Bing Web Searches, results from the iTunes Store, or live currency conversions. Underneath the scrolling categories pane is the option Allow Spotlight Suggestions in Spotlight and Look up. This is a switch for Spotlight’s capability for accessing smart results, such as sports scores, and those based on location, including nearby restaurants, cinema times and weather reports. Disable the option and these kinds of results will not be available. (Apple notes 54 MACWORLD • JANUARY 2017 MWJAN17.indd 54
