What's wrong with mys search

Postby terrypin » Thu Sep 21, 2017 10:25 am

What have I got wrong here please? I expected this to show the many VBS files in both C and D drives, but I'm only getting the latter.

*.vbs c: | *.vbs d:

The OR operator has higher precedence in Everything 1.4.
This means terms with an OR (|) operator are searched first before terms with an AND ( space ) operator.

Everything treats *.vbs c: | *.vbs d: as *.vbs (c: | *.vbs) d:

Please use < and > to group terms, for example:
<*.vbs c:> | <*.vbs d:>

or search for:
*.vbs c: | d:

Operator precedence can be changed from Tools -> Options -> Search -> Operator precedence.

Thanks, understood. It looked intuitive to m, but I assume it was previously not configured with that precedence. But I'll group in future to be sure.
