In OSX Spotlight, how do I find in which folder a document is? It used to be that hovering the mouse over the doc would show the folder. I miss that functionality!
Hold option and command for a second. (Edit: On 10.9 and later, hold command only.) It'll show you the path. Well, part of the path. It's really not as useful as it used to be.
Other than that, command-R (or command-return) will reveal the original file, just as with the previous version.
And, of course, you can Show All In Finder. If you have the status bar showing, it should show the path there as well. (And in a slightly better form.)
If you want the path in a copyable form:
- press ⌘ + i
You'll get the standard File Info dialog.
Update: In Yosemite, for some reason, the dialog opens behind other windows, so might not be visible. Also the path is displayed as
▸ Users ▸ user ▸ Downloads ▸ somefilename which is not as useful as in previous versions.
Drag and drop
If you need to copy the path for example to terminal, you can drag-and-drop a file from Spotlight directly into the terminal window - you will get the full path inserted at cursor position (same way as if you drag a file from Finder).
