Do you have a Filter set, like, Video?
Or Regex enabled (& then depending on your search criteria)?

No not using a filer.

Not sure what you mean Regex enabled.

Search (menu item), Enable Regex (or Ctrl+R).


Otherwise, are the batch files hardlinked elsewhere too?

I pressed [Ctrl][R] and was able to see all the *.bat files.

What is RegEx??? I can't find it in the help.

In computing, a regular expression provides a concise and flexible means for "matching" (specifying and recognizing) strings of text, such as particular characters, words, or patterns of characters.

2.4 How do I use regex?

Thanks for the help. I did know what regular expressions are - I just didn't know regex was an abbreviation for it.
