Ubuntu – Disable Dash searching for files


I've looked fairly extensively, so I hope this isn't a duplicate.

I'm wondering how to disable the Dash search from searching for individual files; I am fine with searching for folders and applications, but searching for individual files in the dash can be obnoxious sometimes.

  • Use Unity Tweak Tool: https://launchpad.net/unity-tweak-tool

    Open using starter after installation, choose "Search", and disable all sources you do not want.
