Downloaded a file called Permute.app.zip

Did a search for "Permute" to see if I already had it on my Mac.  Using contains and it found it.  I extracted it and use name and kind (.app) and I get results other than just the Permute.app   I would have thought that defining the Kind as would have limited the search to only files with the .app extension.

Any suggestions or comments on what I am doing wrong?

Hi!

The easiest way to get the desired results would be to use a "Content kind" criterion rather than the "Kind" criterion.

As a general rule, you may use the Inspector window on a file to discover the actual values for all of its attributes. These are then the values you can use to search for similar files.

The "Kind" criterion does not take file extensions but long type names. E.g. "application" for .app or "Microsoft windows application" for .exe
