### key search doesn't work

Got Everything installed on my new Windows 10 computer. First search I ran was successful for a "*.sld" set of files anywhere which allowed me to delete the old obsolete versions of that kind of ffile. Another search hasn't worked. What I'm trying to do is to obtain a list of "*." files (they are filename only text files without any ".ext" such as "MSFT") modified on a specific date including everything within all subfolders of the primary directory. There are more than 5,000 files of that sort within the primary directory, virtually none anywhere else. On Windows 7, I start by searching on "*." then shift into the directory that contains what I want to search by specific date, specify the date and up comes my listing of folders and files that I modified on that date. Can this be done with Everything? If so, HOW?

### Re: key search doesn't work

I probably misunderstood what you are trying to accomplish, but this should get you a little closer:

Code: Select all

"c:\path\to\ primary folder"     ext:     date:2019-11-29
Where:
"c:\path\to\ primary folder" the path to your primary folder
ext: files without extension
dm:2019-11-29 files modified on a specific date, using year-month-day syntax
