Showing folders as well as files

Post by Reflexwolf » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:48 pm

I'm trying to get everything to show all my comics of a name and to show not just the cbr cbz and such but to show also matching folders like it will when you have it set to search for "everything" is there a way I'm missing to do this?
Thanks very much for any help!

I'm not sure what you mean by "matching folders", but if I want to find folders,executables ànd INI files with Everything in their name, I would search for:

Code: Select all

everything     folder:|ext:exe;ini
See the Searching support page for details.

Note that Operator Precedence can make a difference, in which case you may need angle-brackets to differentiate things.

If Options | General -> Search --> Operator precedence: AND > OR is set, you'll need something like:

everything <folder:|ext:exe;ini>
