HoudahSpot is a powerful file search tool. Use HoudahSpot to locate hard-to-find files and keep frequently used files within reach.
HoudahSpot will immediately feel familiar. It works just the way you expect search to work. Start with a simple search. Refine it by adding and combining criteria. Browse search results. Add columns. Preview files and text matches. Pick the files you really need.
・Find files by name, text, content kind, author, recipient, pixel count, etc.
・Combine criteria to narrow down search results
・Specify which folders to search and which ones to exclude
・Add any of the hundreds of columns available
・Apply filters to reduce search results to only the relevant items
・Preview files and text matches
・Open files and, where the application supports it, continue searching for text matches by pressing command-G (Find Next)
・Set up templates for recurring searchesHoudahSpot builds upon Spotlight, which comes preinstalled with macOS. It helps you find the files you need:
・Mails about a “CV” or “resumé” received this year
・Word processing files containing the word “invoice” or “estimate”
・Image files named “logo” more than 512 pixels wide
・Files created, modified or opened within the last 7 days

・Fixed a bug with initial keyboard focus on macOS Sierra
・Fixed a bug where HoudahSpot could crash while closing an active search
