possible new features related to selection

1. 'expand selection' feature
when folder(s) is selected, press 'expand selection' and get all content (folders and files) selected too

2. 'restore selection' feature

You can do this currently, although its a little extra work than it would be with just clicking 'expand selection':
  • Make sure Clear selection on search is disabled from Tools -> Options -> Results.
  • Search for the path of interest, example: c:\folder\
  • Select all results.
  • You can now change the search and all the sub-files and sub-folders will remain selected.
I will consider an option to expand selection / restore selection option.

Thanks for the suggestion.
