How can I find all the files on my system that have a Finder comment (the one you can see in "Comments" when using "Get Info")?

  1. Navigate to the folder you want to search in, and bring up spotlight search (+F)

  2. Choose "Raw Query" from the list of filter options (add it by choosing "Other..." if you don't see it listed)

  3. Enter the following in the text field to the right:


This will filter the results in the location searched to any file/folder that has a Finder comment.
