"Spotlight" is a searching program (files on your computer).
"Finder" is when you're working in the "desktop environment"...very similar to the "Desktop" in the Windows OS world.
Apple just calls the "desktop environment" by a different name (which Apple developed and named it "Finder") long BEFORE (1984) Microsoft & Bill Gates came out with Windows (Windows version 1.0 came out in November, 1985)
