I am very disappointed on Mavericks: The finder truly is a basic feature. I do not know if I have the same Problem: When using the finder I get a kind of "frozen" screen with the file names, any further info is missing and I cannot open any file!
The finder totally lost it's basic purpose to finde files... also Spotlight becam much less reliable.
Thanks for discussion!
Agree, totally disappointed with Mavericks.
So messing, so slow, and not works as expected at all….
Missing so much Snow Leopard, best OS ever.
What Apple wants to be for the future? It’s appears that Apple wants to be only an old history of triumph, but not looking for success, anymore.
No respect for users, no marketing… Not an great company?
I'm so glad to hear someone else point out the superiority of Snow Leopard to any Mac OS since. With each subsequent version, it has gotten more bloated, gimmicky and less useable. Apple seems so eager to make changes, they have adopted second-rate solutions to previously solved problems (case in point Tags versus Labels, and any recent version of iTunes). It is disheartening when Apple "improves" things that used to work with things that don't.
any solution for this? i have the exact same issue i cannot search in finder, but the spotlight search is working fine, tried to follow the re index steps. still nothing in finder.
please i need help.
on the other hand i missed in finder the color tags which was easy one step to apply any idea if we can get those back.
This may sound obvious and rather old fashioned but I too suffered the following problems
1. Search not working in Mail
2. Mail Junk and Trash folders missing
3. Search not working in Finder
I fixed it by........restarting my mac.
Now everything works.
Give it a try.
I was having the same problem trying to find a solution but no solution is out there worked. So I just download the Yosimite Beta and everything is working as normal and faster. It comes out this fall so its probably 90% complete with out bugs.
I installed it 24 hours ago and no problems along with spotlight working, preview, mail search and time machine works which many had problems in Maverick.
Search in Finder, OS 10.9.5* is hit or miss. Searching a folder for [name includes] "slide" (or just "slide) returns no results. However, a search for .psd pulls up "Home Page Slide.psd".
*Apple's new interface designs for both mobile and desktop are so ugly that I'm waiting until I absolutely have to to update.
