Question: Spotlight search in macOS High Sierra doesn't return accurate result

Since I have updated the OS on my MacBook Pro (late 2014) the Spotlight search does not return a sensible result. I search for an app on my device and it returns movies or documents containing that word.

I tried to re-index the searchable items and it did not help at all. I removed all the searchable places and kept the "Applications" as the only place where spotlight can search and it returned no result at all.

Can someone please help?

Answer:
Answer:

The new update (OSx 10.13.2) helped to resolve the issue I reported earlier.

I had trouble updating the OSx through app store, the device could not restart. A manual restart didn't help at all.

Eventually I downloaded the OSx from apple website and updated my OS, everything looks to be working, my spotlight issue is resolve too.
