I have TextEdit, and I got it with my MacBook Air, and ever since I got it, TextEdit ALWAYS showed up in Spotlight. I could just type in "t" because I use it so often. Now, It will not appear in spotlight, at all. No matter what I type. In order for Spotlight to even open up anything related to textedit, I would have to type in the name of a document. But it still exists in applications, and opens when I click on a rtf. etc. document. And yes, I do have caps lock, etc it's normal except for Spotlight, and I tried typing textedit in many differnt "ways". I have not fiddled with the settings either. (Sorry for so much sentences I am just trying to narrow the possibilities down.
I hope someone can help, thanks.
