AHK code to replace Windows F3 to use Everything

Postby pgross41 » Fri Nov 06, 2015 5:01 pm

I just installed everything and love it! I wrote an AHK script so F3 will use Everything instead of Windows search. If you've never used AHK it's pretty small, just install it from here http://ahkscript.org/download/ and save the following text in a file with an ".ahk" extension then double click it. F3 will now open Everything for the current folder when in a Windows explorer window.

#IfWinActive, ahk_class CabinetWClass
F3::
Send, {F4 2}
Sleep, 100
ControlGetText currentDir, Edit1
Sleep, 100
run, C:\Program Files (x86)\Everything\Everything.exe -p "%currentDir%"
return

Same thing but different.
Works on windows 10.
Using Ctrl+F, replace with F3 if you want.
