Question: High Sierra - Spotlight will not make adequate search

Before update Spotlight gave full search results, e.g. Clare would give folders, documents, jpegs etc. Now no jpegs and only a few folders or files, despite preselection in preferences. Can anyone help us?

Mac mini, macOS High Sierra (10.13.1)

Hi macjack and all,

I am having the same problem. However, the resolution did not work, I still do not find much in Spotlight.

Interestingly, it makes a difference between searching via the menubar items and searching in Finder.

What else could I attempt to get the search functionality back? (it worked fine under Sierra)

Thank you for any idea!
