    It lets me type things in, but then just sits there dumbly--even when I hit search. Can you help?

    Look at Settings - General - Spotlight Search: what is enabled there?

    Enable/disable by tapping, the check mark will appear/disappear.

    Got it! Saw the list and thought all those apps were turned on. Didn't realize I had to check them.

    Thanks a lot!

    Don't suppose you know how to determine just where the found app is located, do you? Seems it only allows me to launch the app.

    It will show you the folder where the app is located:
