Perhaps someone knows of a better way to do this, but:

In finder, how do you display the last date modified and / or the location of files using the search feature? For example, if I search for a file named ALEX.txt, I may need to know the last time it was modified, not when it was opened. Or I might even need to check what directory it is in. Also, how could I search for a specific type, such as Word documents, not just all documents types.

Thanks!

Hi there,

sorry some times posts get missed...

By the search feature are you talking about Spotlight or by using command + f

No problem, thanks for the response.
Either one, I guess, I am just looking for an easy way to view a list of files based on last modification date. I have also encountered results in Finder or Spotlight where there are two files (unfortunately named the same thing) in two different locations - but Spotlight does not indicate a directory, so its hard to sort things out.

Thanks!
