Apple - Spotlight can't find Google Chrome app

Deleting Spotlight's index of your files and reinitializing it should allow it to find your apps in the Applications folder.

1. Turn off spotlight:

sudo mdutil -a -i off

2. Unload its metadata plist:

sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

3. Load its metadata plist:

sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

4. Turn on Spotlight again:

sudo mdutil -a -i on
