File Path in Spotlight on OS X

When you click a search result in Spotlight, the item will open with its default program.

But what if you want to know the file’s path instead of opening it? Here’s how:

  • Hold down ⌘ + ⌥ to reveal the file’s path below the preview box appearing to the left of the search result list.
  • ⌘ + click, or ⌘ + ⏎, to reveal the file in the Finder.
