It takes all the tedium out of file search. Use HoudahSpot to locate hard-to-find files and keep frequently used files within reach. HoudahSpot for macOS is an essential tool for professionals and power users who work with thousands of files. It picks the needles out of the proverbial haystack.
Quick Search Field
Find files by typing just a few words. It starts the search at your command: Hit Return when you are ready.
Refine your Search
Add criteria to narrow down your search to the exact files you are looking for. Choose from hundreds of attributes to search by: name, text, tags, file size, date created, etc.
Search several locations at once. Specify which subfolders to include and which to exclude. Houdah Spot can, for example, search your home folder, skip the Library folder, but still show results from the Mail folder, which is nested within your Library folder.
Add and sort by any of the hundreds of columns available. See file paths, folder sizes, image dimensions, etc. Customize results display: view as list, icons or thumbnails. Save your perfect setup of criteria, locations and columns as default for new windows.
Preview & Info
The Info pane, Quick Look and Text Preview help you explore search results and pick the files you are looking for. A concise summary shows the most relevant properties of found files. These include file size and modification dates as well as image dimensions, video duration, etc.
Create snippets to hold sets of criteria you use frequently. The sample snippet “Images” contains criteria commonly used when searching for images.
Save searches as templates. These serve as blueprints to create new searches. It comes with a set of sample templates. The “Apple Mail Messages” template is set up with useful criteria for finding email messages stored by Apple Mail.
