    Default Is there a way to extend the functionality of Spotlight?

    I'm looking for a way to extend the functionality of Spotlight. As it is, it's only a slightly useful search function to directly open a result, e.g. a document or webpage. A little known option is to click in the results list on the heading section for the result group to open a Finder window with a "search this mac" results list.
    Still only slightly useful.
    I want, directly from the initial search list, to be able to right-click for additional options, e.g. send to trash (files & browser history items), share via email/messages etc (in the case of files), show enclosing folder, tag, copy, etc etc...
    Any ideas???

    Default Spotlight - extending functionality?

    Contact Apple and let them know.......In the meantime, use the Spotlight feature as it is currently designed.
