Spotlight does not show contents from the internet. It only searches my mac HD. What should I do?

I am using MacBookPro Retina 13" with Yosemite 10.10.3

  • What do you mean from the internet? The ability to perform quick search on Bing? – user14492 May 7 '15 at 13:16
  • I mean when i search something through Spotlight app, it must show results have founded in internet in addition to results have founded inside my mac. – Siyamak Hejazi May 7 '15 at 17:38
  • Wikipedia results? Can you give a screenshot or example on the web because I haven't seen any results from the "internet" in spotlight? Internet is quite vague. – user14492 May 7 '15 at 18:52

For 10.13 only sixteen countries have this feature - http://www.apple.com/osx/feature-availability/#spotlight-suggestions

I mean your country might not be in the list yet, I'm facing the same issue

For macOS High Sierra, here is the feature list page documenting what works where.


Make sure in System Preferences > Spotlight, that you have checked the Bing Web Searches checkbox under the Search Results tab:

  • Bing Web Searches checkbox already has checked. 👍 – Siyamak Hejazi May 7 '15 at 17:39
