macosxhints – 10.4: Keep the Trash out of Spotlight

By default, Spotlight searches include items in the trash can. While this may be a feature to some (“where did I put that file? Oh yeah, it’s in the trash.”), it can be quite a frustration to those of us who are constantly throwing away files of the same name. You can add your trash can to Spotlight’s Privacy panel to stop this behavior.
