How to keep fullscreen?

Post by kesdoputr » Wed Nov 13, 2019 10:16 pm

I try to use
-fullscreen in cmdline
write fullscreen=1 in everything.ini

And everything will launch in fullscreen mode, but when i press Esc want to close the everything window(still run in background)
The first action is exit the fullscreen mode, so i must press Esc two times to close everything.

Is there any method can press Esc one time to close the everything window when it's under fullscreen mode? Thank you

I don't think that's possible with Everything alone
You can do this with this AutoHotkey Script
#IfWinActive,AHK_class EVERYTHING
Esc::WinClose
This closes the window in fullscreen mode so when you bring the everything window again,it will appear in fullscreen

Or if you want to first exit fullscreen and then close the window
#IfWinActive,AHK_class EVERYTHING
Esc::
Keywait,Esc
WingetPos,X
If X = 0
{
Send,{F11}
Sleep,50
}
WinClose,A
Return
When you are in window mode,it will just send Esc but when you are in fullscreen,it will first exit and then close the window

You will also have to enable "Tools=>Options=>General=>UI=>Run in background" if you want everything to keep running when you close the window

Currently Everything will eat one escape key press to cancel the fullscreen mode.

I've added an ini option esc_cancel_action for the next major version of Everything to control this ESC action.

Use CTRL-W to close the window.

The next major version of Everything will be version 1.5.
The nightly builds are version 1.4.x.x.

So, to answer your question: No :)

I've added the esc_cancel_action to Everything 1.4.1.956.

To disable the esc_cancel_action:
  • Install Everything 1.4.1.956.
  • In Everything 1.4.1.956 or later, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /esc_cancel_action=0
If successful, esc_cancel_action=0 should be shown in the status bar for a few seconds.

When disabled, pressing esc will no longer cancel the current action.

To re-enable the esc_cancel_action:
  • In Everything 1.4.1.956 or later, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /esc_cancel_action=1
