Everything can deal with the files' description made by Total Commander 8.51 ?

Hi ,

1.I manage the files with Total Commander 8.51.

2.File_name is not fit to description much about the file usage.
In Total Commander I can use Ctrl+Z to call out the file description window and write down all the messages i want for the current bar of the file.
Total Commander put the messages i wrote into a hidden file named descript.ion with the file at the same directory.

3.I use the Everything_tool to search the same file in step_2 successfully .

I want to know how i can set the Everything_tool option to display the description messages for the file in the descrpt.ion.

Unfortunately, that's not possible. Everything can search for filenames and content of that file. When the content is in a separate file, it will not find it

Some alternatives:
- If you want the description of MyFile.doc, you could use this search query to find the right descript.ion file, which you have to open in a viewer/editor to view its content:
descript.ion content:"myfile.doc"


- Use a different indexing tool taht does handle descript.ion files, like Disk Explorer Professional (free; no longer under development but works without issues)
